Mikulski And Cardin Announce Sandy Supplemental Appropriations Bill

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 News - Senators Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin announced Friday the approval of the "Super-Storm Sandy Supplemental Appropriations Bill"

Reports say the bill would provide additional support to states like Maryland that are still struggling to recover from the Superstorm that hit the east coast 2 months ago.

Under the bill, it will provide immediate resources for FEMA disaster relief and other organizations.

The bill will also provide FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate with greater flexibility to weigh economic factors when determining eligibility for Individual Disaster Assistance.

Maryland's Somerset County, for example, has an unemployment rate of 9.4 percent.
