Governor Christie holds a Sandy town hall on LBI

Gov. Chris Christie will hold a town hall meeting on Superstorm Sandy recovery and rebuilding on Long Beach Island.

Tuesday's event comes little more than six months after the storm pounded the popular destination.

The federal government on Monday approved the state's plan to spend $1.83 billion in grants to help homeowners and businesses get back on their feet.

The plan includes $825 million for elevation and reconstruction of damaged primary residences, $255 million for displaced renters and $300 million in small business grants.
