Resiliency, Disaster Relief and Infrastructure

Across Burlington and Ocean Counties, we’ve seen our communities hard hit from Superstorm Sandy and increased flooding that effect our homes and businesses. We have seen these extreme weather events increase over the years, and I’m dedicated to ensuring South Jersey is prepared to handle the impact. Listening to our local leaders and working across the aisle, I’ve helped introduced bills to make our communities more resilient in the face of these storms, and to ensure that our families aren’t left behind long after the storm passes.

Check out what I’m doing to support New Jersey’s families and protect New Jersey’s infrastructure in the face of increased storms:

H.R.5700 — Resilient Highways Act
H.R.3208 — Real Emergency Access for Aging and Disability Inclusion for Disasters Act
H.R.3215 — Disaster Relief Medicaid Act
H.R.3647 — Impact Aid Infrastructure Act
H.R.3872 — National Flood Insurance Program Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2019
