CT Request for Sandy Funding Pale by Comparison

Washington—After Hurricane Sandy devastated their states, the governors of New York and New Jersey tapped big-name consulting firms to create voluminous, detailed requests for help from the federal government.

New York state, which sought a total of $32 billion from Washington, submitted a 56-page report with the help of Price Waterhouse Coopers. It detailed the needs of every town, state university and agency affected by the storm. New York City had its own detailed request, as did New Jersey, which asked for $29.5 billion.

In contrast, the $3.2 billion request from Gov. Dannel Malloy’s administration fit on one 8-by-11-inch sheet of paper. Most of the money sought—$2.58 billion—was requested to bury power lines and upgrade the state’s power transmission systems. No specific locations for those improvements were mentioned.

Connecticut also requested $495 million to safeguard coastal municipalities and other communities from the effects of future severe storms, but it did not explain how that money would be distributed. The request did say the governor wanted to spend it on road improvements and flood protection, like new or improved seawalls. But it didn’t say where these projects would be sited or offer other specifics.
