CBS 6 TV in Albany reports that a new audit found "significant deficiency" in the way that $22 million was spent promoting tourism in areas recovering from Hurricane Irene in 2011. The Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Inspector General said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration did not comply with procurement rules and did not ensure money was spent effectively. Cuomo's Office of Storm Recovery disagreed with the audit's findings. Locally, Prattsville was the town hit hardest by the storms surrounding Hurricane Irene. Read the full story at CBS 6 TV in Albany.
