Protecting Our Environment

Thousands of families across Ocean and Burlington county have suffered from flooding. Whether from the devastating Superstorm Sandy or from recent storms. There is even flooding on sunny days. We need to fix this immediately and secure our communities.

During my time in Congress, I’ve secured millions of dollars in loan forgiveness for shore towns still recovering from Superstorm Sandy, introduced bipartisan legislation to prepare our roads, bridges, and infrastructure for extreme storms, and voted for resources and funding to increase the resilience of our coastal communities.

We need even bolder action to protect our environment and make our communities more resilient to extreme weather. One of the best legacies we can give to our kids, grandkids, and generations to come is a safe and thriving planet. I won’t stop working to maximize investments in our coastal communities and create policies that mitigate the climate crisis and create a resilient future.

That’s why I’m fighting for our once-in-a-generation opportunity to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and fight climate change by:

The investments we make now will create thousands of jobs in New Jersey and provide a cleaner, safer environment to enjoy now and in generations to come. That is a future we can look forward to.
