WOODBURY - A new investigation into cleanup contracts awarded to Long Island companies in the wake of Superstorm Sandy has been launched by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

The probe was launched after Schneiderman received several complaints, according to Newsday.

Details of the investigation have not yet been released.

Nassau lawmakers were battling last week over $7 million paid to a tree removal company without legislative approval.
