The BuildStrong Coalition commended U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) for introducing the Senate version of The Safe Building Code Incentive Act today. The Menendez bill applies retroactively to prior to Superstorm Sandy, ensuring that New Jersey and New York, two states that have long enforced strong building codes would be immediately eligible for additional disaster relief aid.

The Menendez bill was co-sponsored by Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ).
