U.S. Senator Charles Schumer is trying to get the ball rolling when it comes to getting fiscal help for Western New York.

New York's senior Senator called senior White House officials Thursday and urged the Administration to be ready to immediately approve any request from New York State for federal support and to allocate resources for the ongoing and immense snow removal effort.

County officials have said they expect the cost of this disaster to meet the criteria needed for federal support.
