Lawmakers have passed a bill that would tighten up how federal funds are used for Sandy recovery.

At nj.com from Thursday:

A bill to more strictly regulate how the state spends federal money intended for Hurricane Sandy recovery was approved by a state Assembly panel today.

The bill aims to make the distribution of aid “more equitable and transparent,” according to its text.

Since it’s been reported previously that projects in towns largely spared by Sandy received federal funds, aide money from federal Community Development Block Grants will be required to be distributed to counties and municipalities in proportion to how much damage they suffered, among other things.
