FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Becky Miller
Albany, NY– Jan 2…New York GOP Chairman Ed Cox today released the following statement:
Since the Senate sent its pork-laden version of the Sandy Relief bill to the House just a few days before the end of the legislative session, we have been working around the clock, rather than playing partisan politics in the press, with New York’s Republican House members, Leader Skelos and Speaker Boehner’s staff to ensure that those effected by Superstorm Sandy continue to receive the help they need.
The work has been complicated by the unprecedented situation created by the last-minute fiscal cliff bill received from the Senate.
We are disappointed that a bill has yet to be passed, but this is a time to work together to get the job done. New York Republicans are working to provide continual disaster relief for victims of Superstorm Sandy as quickly as possible.
