The $8 million to $12 million that Metro North lost during the recent 12 day New Haven line service disruption caused by a feeder cable failure should be paid by Con Ed. That's according to Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal.
The Senators have written to Con Ed and the New York Public Service Commission to get the utility to cover the costs.
Blumenthal says Con Ed is making hundreds of millions of dollars in profits and can afford to pay for their failure. He notes that the New York Public Service Commission has the power to compel Con Ed to pay.
