O’Toole Introduces Sandy Bill to Save Lives, Property, Infrastructure

Senator Kevin O’Toole (R-Bergen, Essex, Morris, Passaic) introduced legislation today that will allow certain trained municipal employees to immediately clear utility lines during emergencies, such as Superstorm Sandy.

“After Superstorm Sandy, too many roads and properties remained blocked or closed by debris for far too long, while communities waited for utility companies to take care of business,” O’Toole said. “This measure will assure that public workers can without delay save lives, property and utility infrastructure, and re-open road access to motorists free of charge to taxpayers.”
