Today, Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) issued the following statement on widespread power outages, following Tropical Storm Isaias:

If a power company's response is delayed, then customers should be reimbursed for spoiled groceries or medicine. It’s unacceptable after every strong storm to keep passing these costs on to customers who are already paying for power. Now, many people are out of work and financially struggling to make ends meet. I am simply asking power companies to do the right thing."
