ALBANY, N.Y. – Governor Andrew Cuomo and Vice President Joe Biden will have a sit-down meeting in Albany Tuesday.
The vice president will be discussing Hurricane Sandy rebuilding efforts with the governor.
Sandy hit New York State in October 2012 flooding homes and destroying businesses. New York City and Long Island were the hardest hit areas.
Cuomo promised to build a stronger and more storm-resistant infrastructure after the storm. New York State received over $5 billion in federal disaster funds for relief and rebuilding in the current fiscal budget.
Biden’s visit comes just one day before Cuomo’s 2014 State of the State address.
Tuesday will be Biden’s second visit to the Capital Region. He was in Clifton Park in 2009.
The meeting between the two political figures will take place at 11:30 a.m. in the Red Room of the New York State Capitol.
