As much as $30 Billion dollars will be injected into relief and rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast. Two New Jersey
Democrats fear that fraud will run rampant soon - and they refuse to let waste and corruption ensue.
"Unfortunately, we have seen too often that people will take advantage of a crisis to better themselves at the public’s expense," Senate
President Stephen Sweeney (D-Gloucester) told The Star-Ledger Thursday.
The words spoken by Mr. Sweeney ring true on so many subjects! Gotta love when someone speaks the truth.
"We can’t allow that in New Jersey. These monitors will save money by ensuring funds are spent efficiently and effectively and by overseeing
the ethical conduct and proper behavior of those we are entrusting to help rebuild our state."
Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-Essex) said the legislation they plan to introduce soon would provide for several paid "integrity
monitors," probably working under the Treasury Department or Comptroller’s office, to oversee rebuilding projects.
They deserve a round of applause, in my opinion.
