Rep. Michael G. Grimm (R,C-NY) issued the following statement in response to Governor Andrew Cuomo's 2013-2014 NY State Budget announcement:
"Governor Cuomo made it clear today that he is fully committed to working with our communities to rebuild in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. "Build it back, build it better' is a smart investment in our future that will allow Staten Island and Brooklyn to rebuild better and stronger than before. I thank the governor for his commitment to the rebuilding effort and making it a top priority in his 2013-2014 budget proposal. I look forward to continuing to work with him and the city to ensure that the funding reaches the areas and individuals most in need, as quickly as possible."
