Today the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a partial Superstorm Sandy bill, discussing the approval of $9 billion in relief aid that was scrapped on the House floor just days before.
House of Representatives passed the $9.7 billion in Sandy relief funds to flood insurance program; 128 House Democrats and 113 GOP members voted today. More than 67 Republicans gave a "nay." vote.
The remaining $51 billion is expected to be discussed on Jan. 15.
Looks like we're making some progress!
