New Jersey's storm recovery chief steps down, replaced by deputy

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 01:11
The director of New Jersey's response to superstorm Sandy stepped down on Tuesday, almost two years after the storm tore through the state, and was replaced by his deputy, Governor Chris Christie's office said. Marc Ferzan, who was appointed in the early days of the recovery in 2012, has been criticized for delays in doling out recovery money. In a statement, Christie said that Ferzan served with "great professionalism, effectiveness and with the needs of Sandy survivors always in the front of his mind." Ferzan's replacement, Terrence Brody, has served as the deputy executive director of the Governor’s Office of Recovery and Rebuilding since its creation.

Contract talks resume as Long Island Rail Road strike looms

Labor negotiators met in New York on Tuesday for another round of talks to avert a strike by 5,400 workers at the Long Island Rail Road, the country's largest commuter railway. LIRR workers have threatened to walk off the job on July 20, when a 60-day cooling-off period is set to expire, if they are unable to agree on a contract after lengthy negotiations with the Metropolitan Transit Authority. A strike would affect about 300,000 weekday riders, most of whom use the railway to commute to and from jobs in New York City from their homes on Long Island. The MTA has worked on a strike backup plan, but the details have not been made public, agency spokesman Aaron Donovan said.

Obama asks Congress for $3.7 billion for immigration crisis

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 00:56

Two female detainees sleep in a holding cell as the children are separated by age group and gender at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Nogales Placement Center in Nogales ArizonaBy Steve Holland and Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House asked the U.S. Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency spending on Tuesday to address a cross-border surge of children from Central America that is taxing public resources and causing a political headache for President Barack Obama. It was Obama's most substantive response to date as he struggles to gain control of a humanitarian crisis along the Texas border with Mexico. The funding move will test Obama's ability to negotiate effectively with Republican lawmakers who have blocked much of his agenda ahead of a November election when they hope to capture the U.S. Senate. Obama has vowed to swiftly return to their home countries the tens of thousands of children under 18 who have flocked to the United States in recent months.
