As the Bayshore continues to be strung along with the possibility of flood insurance, thanks to the newly updated Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), I am posing questions to the peoples’ state representatives, Sen. Robert Mendendez and Sen. Frank Lautenberg.
“[The Courier is] putting together a story regarding Congressman Frank Pallone’s legislation to put a moratorium on FEMA’s implementation of the newly redesigned flood maps, particularly in the Bayshore.
Many Bayshore municipalities are passing resolutions in support of his legislation.
I would like comments from the Senator regarding:
1) The legislation itself, does he support it?
2) What the Senator thinks about the Bayshore supporting Congressman Pallone’s legislation.
Also, if possible – not necessarily a priority- his general comments regarding the entire FEMA flood map situation.”
Plain and simple: I want answers. So should you.
Please call both Senators’ offices and let them know you support Pallone’s legislation and want them to do something about this situation, too.
