House Approves $50.7B For Sandy Aid

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON D.C. - The House has approved a $50.7 billion measure for Superstorm Sandy victims.
    
The 241-180 vote sends the measure to the Senate which is expected to take it up next Tuesday.
    
Northeast lawmakers from both parties have been pressing for the aid for more than two months.
    
The Oct. 29 storm is blamed for 140 deaths and pounded the Atlantic coast from North Carolina to Maine with hurricane-force winds and coastal flooding. New York, New Jersey and Connecticut were the hardest hit.
