New York Asks FEMA for $42 Billion For Sandy Recovery
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York’s congressional delegation are asking the federal government for nearly $42 billion dollars to repair damage from Superstorm Sandy and to install preventative measures to help ease future flooding.

The cost includes $32 billion for repairs and restoration, but also includes an additional $9 billion for mitigation of damage and for preventive measures for the next disastrous storm.
 
Cuomo says New York taxpayers can't foot the bill.
 
The Governor met with the New York's congressional delegation Monday including U-S Senator Chuck Schumer and Congressman Peter King.
 
Other states are seeking federal assistance, too. FEMA has already paid out nearly $250 million in New Jersey, where Gov. Chris Christie says the preliminary damage estimate is $29.4 billion and could rise.
 
States typically get 75 percent reimbursement for the cost of governments to restore mass transit and other services after a disaster.
