FEMA chief: Sandy fund should last until spring

The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency says there’s enough money in the government’s disaster relief fund for Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts until early spring.  FEMA Director Craig Fugate told the House Transportation Committee on Tuesday that the fund still has about $4.8 billion that it can disperse. So far, the government has distributed about $2 billion in aid to the 11 states struck by the late October storm.
