GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — The head of New Jersey's Economic Development Authority says the first post-Sandy tourism season did better than expected.

Speaking Tuesday at a public hearing on the state's plans to spend its next $1.4 billion in storm recovery aid, Michele Brown said tourism in 2013 was only "slightly behind" the record set in 2012.

Brown did not give figures at the hearing, but the announced 2012 tourism figure was nearly $40 billion. She said 2013 did better than 2009 and 2011.

The state is planning a new summer tourism campaign this year with $5 million in Sandy funds.
