DiNapoli Statement on Senate Sandy Aid Vote

Yesterday’s vote by the U.S. Senate, along with the action in the House earlier this month, will bring much needed relief to the many New Yorkers and our fellow Americans struggling to recover and rebuild in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

It is my hope that any future requests for aid after natural disasters be greeted with a much quicker response from Washington, no matter what area of the country is affected. Political considerations must be put aside when we are talking about peoples’ lives.

I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to Senator Schumer and Senator Gillibrand for leading the way and working hard to earn the bill’s passage.
