The war on Triple-E in Central New York is getting some federal firepower. New York’s senior U.S. Senator has a plan he hopes will help deal with a virus , that's transmitted by mosquitos and has become a part of our environment.
Sen. Chuck Schumer announced Tuesday a three pronged federal plan to help local officials fight Eastern Equine Encephalitis, the mosquito borne illness that killed a 4 year old Oswego County girl this summer.
"Our local and state health departments have done a great job," said Schumer. "I have no dispute with them. They could use federal help."
