Assembly Democrats Vince Mazzeo and John Armato (D-Atlantic) released the following statement Saturday on legislation to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy:
“Today, we remember the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Sandy hitting landfall in New Jersey.
“Though a significant amount of time has passed, we fully recognize that far too many of our families and local businesses are still struggling to regain what was lost during the devastating superstorm.
“In the Assembly, we are focused on the work that we, as a state, still have left to do in order to get to a place of full recovery. That is why we have introduced a number of bills to continue to fight for our residents and business owners who are still struggling to rebuild their homes and communities.”
The bills include:
· A-4529 (Mazzeo, Armato): Concerns reimbursements to Superstorm Sandy-impacted homeowners who were subject to contractor fraud.
· A-4530 (Armato, Mazzeo): Concerns information, such as mold damage, on property condition disclosure statements provided by real estate broker, broker-salesperson, salesperson, government employee or a person licensed by the state to inspect homes.
· A-4531 (Armato, Mazzeo): Requires New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism prepare report on state travel and tourism industry recovery since Hurricane Sandy.
