Reed Backs Cuomo Request for Federal Sandy Dollars

Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to request at least 30 billion dollars in federal disaster aid to rebuild after Superstorm Sandy. The money will go to cover costs to repair bridges, tunnels subways and commuter rail lines. Congressman Tom Reed was asked if the state might be going overboard in the amount of money it's seeking....

                             

Reed said getting the effected areas back on their feet is what's most important right now



The funding will also help rebuild homes and apartments, reimburse local governments for emergency services and make loans and grants to businesses.  The plan is based on an estimated $50 billion in damages.
