Schumer: $1B in Sandy aid going to NY coast
New York Senator Charles Schumer says the Sandy federal aid bill provides for more than $1 billion for projects to shield the coast in the future. Mr. Schumer said Sunday that Army Corps of Engineer projects also include a $20 million study of New York harbor and repairs to navigation channels and ports. A Senate vote on the aid package is set for Monday. The bill already passed the House. It includes $5.4 billion in appropriations for emergency and long-term projects. On the coast that stretches from New York City to Long Island, projects would fortify roads, rebuild beaches and raise houses. The harbor would be dredged to make sure it stays navigable in a storm.
