BROOKLYN - Mayor Michael Bloomberg traveled to the nation's capitol this week in an effort to get more aid for Superstorm Sandy victims in New York City.

Bloomberg appealed to more than half a dozen Congressional leaders from both parties in Washington D.C. Wednesday in hopes of getting federal funding for storm recovery. He says the total from the storm is about $19 billion.

New York lawmakers in Washington say they expect the fight for Sandy aid to drag on for months and that several emergency spending bills are needed.
