Governor Cuomo is ordering an investigation into how utility companies prepared for and reacted to Hurricane Sandy.

The governor has repeatedly criticized the utilities for what he considered slow progress restoring power to more than 2 million customers from Long Island to the Hudson Valley.

The commission will be run by former Attorney General Robert Abrams and Cuomo's Financial Services Director.
