Schumer, Reed Address Sandy Funding and Future

A Senate committee has begun hearings into the damage caused by hurricane Sandy. Senator Chuck Schumer said advancing improvements in infrastructure should not be done under old rules and regulations.



                                     

Schumer recommended a three point approach to re-building following Sandy to better prepare coastal areas from future storms.



                                    


Congressman Tom Reed says one reason to get federal spending under control is so we can help our country in times of need like with Sandy.....



Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants huge electrical transformers in commercial buildings hauled to upper floors and wants the ability to shutter key tunnels, airports and subways from floodwaters as part of a $9 billion plan to safeguard New York City from the next superstorm.
