Gov. Chris Christie’s plan to spend half a billion dollars of federal Hurricane Sandy aid on small businesses and tourism is gaining wide support from the business community.
Christie late Tuesday released his plan for the first wave of federal Sandy recovery money. The $1.8 billion will come from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in the form of Community Development Block Grants.
