NJ seeks $37B in federal aid for Sandy recovery

TRENTON, N.J. — Governor Chris Christie has asked the federal government for nearly $37 billion to help New Jersey recover and rebuild after Hurricane Sandy.

Christie announced the revised total Wednesday to include $7.4 billion to cover mitigation, protection, and prevention of future disasters. A preliminary total of $29.4 billion announced last week covers repairs and response. The total amount he sought is greater than New Jersey’s entire annual budget.
