CEOs, governors push for Sandy storm aid
ALBANY, N.Y. – The governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut on Thursday issued a powerful plea to Congress: Don’t leave for the holidays until you decide on aid for states battered by superstorm Sandy.
Joining the effort were more than 125 prominent CEOs based in New York who also urged Congress to quickly pass a $60 billion aid package.
Govs. Chris Christie of New Jersey, Andrew Cuomo of New York and Dannel Malloy of Connecticut said no region or state should have to stand alone after a disaster. They said Congress hasn’t acted in seven weeks following Sandy, taking longer to provide aid than in previous disasters such as Hurricane Katrina.
