Many Sandy victims still await federal aid


WASHINGTON — As the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy nears, senators from New Jersey and New York still have tough questions for administration officials over rebuilding efforts, according to USA Today.

Senators are also expressing concerns about flood insurance premiums that are set to skyrocket in coming months, the article stated.

According to the article, while both Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Senator Charles Schumer, (D-NY) praised Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan for his work heading the administration's task force overseeing Sandy recovery efforts, they had questions as to why, almost a year after the October 29 storm, some businesses and homeowners are still waiting for assistance.

"While we have made a lot of progress and we should be proud of that progress, it would be wrong to believe that we have overcome all of the challenges that were created by Superstorm Sandy," said Menendez.
