(AP) New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Connecticut Gov. Dannel (DAN-uhl) Malloy are joining forces in a regional effort to land more federal aid for recovering from Superstorm Sandy.


The announcement came Thursday from Cuomo's office. He says federal aid will have to be flexible so states can use it without too many restrictions.


Cuomo, a Democrat, is asking for $42 billion for repairs and preventive measures. Christie, a Republican, is seeking $37 billion for recovery and rebuilding. Malloy, a Democrat, says Connecticut's bill is $3.5 billion.


Cuomo says he's working closely with Rep. Peter King, a New York Republican, because getting aid approved by the GOP-led House may be trickier than in the Democrat-led Senate.
