Some of the more than $60 billion set aside for states hit hard by Sandy is now going somewhere else.

The bill for this money was quietly amended at the last minute.

Now some of the money that would have come to our area, will go to Gulf Coast states hit by a smaller storm.

NY Senator Chuck Schumer defended the changes saying bills like the “Sandy Bill” often help cover multiple disasters.
