LAWRENCE, N.Y. — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the Long Island Power Authority “has to end.”

Cuomo made the critical remarks Wednesday while helping to pass out holiday meals to Superstorm Sandy victims in Lawrence, Long Island.

According to Newsday, Cuomo also said LIPA (LY’-puh) “hasn’t worked in a long, long time.”

LIPA did not immediately respond to a comment request.

Cuomo has formed a commission to investigate the responses of utilities following the superstorm. The governor said he expects a “full report in a matter of weeks.”

LIPA’s operations chief has resigned.
