FEMA Agrees to Fund Reconstruction of Owego Elementary School
10/28/2013 (Updated 11:08:22 PM)After two years and Senator Chuck Schumer's influence, a formal announcement was made from Schumer on Monday that FEMA has finally agreed to fund the reconstruction of the Owego Elementary School.
Senator Schumer announced that more than 24 million dollars will be given to the school through FEMA funding. Two years ago, the school was destroyed by Tropical Storm Lee. FEMA initially denied the application to replace the school. Since then, Schumer has been working with the school district to get more funding so reconstruction of the new school can begin which is scheduled for next month.
