WASHINGTON – Senators Joe Lieberman and Richard Blumenthal and Reps. Rosa Delauro, Joe Courtney, John Larson, Chris Murphy and Jim Himes thank the Administration for sending more federal assistance to help the people of Connecticut recover from Superstorm Sandy.

“We’re pleased the federal government recognizes the devastation we experienced in the state because of Hurricane Sandy and will send additional aid to help rebuild Connecticut communities,” the delegation said in a joint statement issued Sunday. “The recovery effort has been and will continue to be difficult. But this assistance will help to rebuild infrastructure damaged by Sandy.”

The assistance provided Friday was expanded to include additional types of rebuilding aid to those areas already benefiting from disaster aid and to provide rebuilding and clean-up help to Litchfield, Tolland, and Windham counties.
