Dear Commons Community,
The Huffington Post just reported that the House of Representatives passed $9.7 billion in aid for Hurricane Sandy victims by a 354-67 vote. All the no votes came from Republicans. The Senate is expected to pass the measure later today and send it to President Barack Obama for his signature. The remaining $50.3 billion of the original $60 billion aid bill will be debated and brought to a vote later this month.
