Schumer, Spitzer Tour Oswego County

By Nate Crossett

PARISH, NY (AP) - Governor Spitzer and U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer toured Oswego County, after more than a week of snowstorms left residents in that region digging out of several feet of snow.

Spitzer and Schumer met with residents and local officials.  They also praised highway department crews for their efforts in clearing away all the snow.

Schumer says the governor has applied for federal assistance to help cover the cost of the snow removal.  He says that aid could arrive within days.
