Tom MacArthur on Environment

 

 


Federal funds for Sandy Recovery, not more flood insurance

As an Ocean County homeowner, Tom knows firsthand how shore area homes, businesses and infrastructure were devastated by Hurricane Sandy, and how good people had their lives turned upside down. Tom sided with Governor Christie and fully supported federal aid for Sandy victims. Tom knows that New Jersey taxpayers send enough money to Washington, and we deserve our fair share in a time of need like a natural disaster.

Tom stood up to members of his own party and supported a delay in implementing the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act, which would cripple already fragile coastal economies by dramatically increasing flood insurance premiums. In Congress Tom will work with others and use his nearly thirty years of insurance experience to find a better and more affordable permanent solution.

Fund estuary preservation for water & recreation

Tom will work with the Freeholder Boards in Burlington and Ocean Counties, as well as other local, state and federal officials, private organizations and citizen groups across the district to help safeguard our environment, while ensuring a proper balance between preservation and development, which is vital to the region. Tom will fight for the rehabilitation of Barnegat Bay, including continued federal funding from the National Estuaries Program. He will urge protection of the unique ecosystem and a vast array of wildlife and endangered species in the Pinelands, as well as the Kirkwood-Cohansey Aquifer that lies beneath it. Tom will work to preserve and restore the Delaware River Basin, not only to protect a huge drinking water supply for South Jersey, but to improve recreation opportunities and economic activity. Last, but certainly not least, Tom will make the safety and cleanliness of our beaches and treasured coastline a top priority.
