Cuomo orders investigation of utilities post-Sandy

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ordered an investigation of how utility companies prepared for and reacted to Superstorm Sandy.
    
Cuomo is ordering the probe under the state's powerful Moreland Commission law that provides for subpoenas and other action. He had previously threatened to hold public hearings on his concerns.
    
Cuomo has repeatedly criticized the utilities for what he considered slow progress restoring power to more than 2 million customers from Long Island to the Hudson Valley.
    
The commission will be run by former Attorney General Robert Abrams and Cuomo's financial services director, Benjamin Lawsky.
    
The probe was announced Tuesday.
