S. Hrg. 113-681: Rebuilding After Hurricane Sandy, Hearing Before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations, United States Seante, One Hundred Thirteenth Congress, First Session, Special Hearing, March 1, 2013, Staten Island, NY   [open pdf - 271KB]

This is the March 2013 hearing on "Rebuilding After Hurricane Sandy" held before a Senate Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations. From the opening statement of Mary L. Landrieu: "Two of our Nation's most populous States-New York and New Jersey-were especially hard hit. The storm claimed the lives of more than 120 Americans and destroyed 340,000 homes and 200,000 businesses. The storm left more than 8.5 million families without power, heat, or running water for weeks-in some communities, much longer. The National Hurricane Center estimates that Hurricane Sandy will be, when all costs and estimates are in, the second costliest in our Nation's history, only behind Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans, the region, and the gulf coast almost 8 years ago. The scale of this disaster has created significant housing and transportation challenges, and the successful rebuilding will require a sustained and coordinated effort at the Federal, State, and local government level, along with significant help from the private sector and voluntary organizations." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Craig Fugate, Laurel Blatchford, Joseph H. Mancini, Scott J. Mandel, and Brad Gair.
