TRENTON - Homeowners still displaced by Superstorm Sandy got to blow off some steam today at the statehouse in Trenton.

Lawmakers held their third public hearing on the state's response to the storm.

Joanne Gwin from Toms River says she still lives in a rental apartment, almost a year after the storm. She says she feels let down by their insurance company as well as the federal and state governments.

"One year out of our home and we're looking at another Christmas with a table top Christmas tree in our little apartment," Gwin says. "Instead of introducing our grandson to our 9-foot Christmas tree which has always been our tradition."

Lawmakers invited several of Gov. Chris Christie's department heads to attend, but according to a spokesperson for the committee, none showed up.
