This bill requires oversight reporting on Hurricane Sandy recovery funds to ensure the transparent and efficient administration of those funds. The bill requires the State Treasurer to issue a New Jersey's Comprehensive Hurricane Sandy Recovery Funding Report. The report is to address: · The amount and manner of recovery funding receipt; · The processes by which recovery funding is distributed; · Operating plans for recovery funding projects and administration; · The award of State grants or contracts using recovery funding; · Analysis of whether recovery funding is achieving its objectives; · Recovery funding job creation through State administered projects; · Recommendations for enhanced efficiency, transparency, and coordination in the administration of recovery funding; · The distribution of recovery funding by county and municipality; and · Any other information the State Treasurer deems relevant to the transparent administration of recovery funding. The bill takes effect upon enactment. It schedules New Jersey's Comprehensive Hurricane Sandy Recovery Funding Report to be due on November 1, 2014 with updated issues of the report due every 30 days thereafter until all Hurricane Sandy recovery funding has been spent and reported. The bill also requires the State Treasure to publish each issue of the report on the Department of the Treasury's website on the same date the report is submitted to the Legislature and the Governor. The bill also contains two administrative provisions: (i) noting that the comprehensive report does not preclude the State Treasurer from issuing expedited priority reports on problems encountered in recovery funding; and (ii) restricting report contents from containing information that may jeopardize compliance with State or federal law, threaten public health, welfare, or safety, or harm the competitive economic position of a party.
