NYC teachers' (pension) fund pledges $1 billion in Sandy aid

Source: Kansas.com (AP)

A pension fund for city teachers is pledging $1 billion in new investments toward repairing roads and bridges damaged by Superstorm Sandy and other infrastructure projects.

The New York City Teachers Retirement System is making the pledge through a project of the Clinton Global Initiative, started in 2005 by former President Bill Clinton, who made the announcement on Thursday.

The pension fund money will go to projects that affect transportation, power, water, communications and housing in New York City and the surrounding metropolitan region.

The projects could include rebuilding housing destroyed by the late October storm, which killed at least 140 people in 10 states but hit New York and New Jersey the hardest, flooding neighborhoods and knocking out power to some residents for weeks.
