$9.7 Billion Approved For The Hurricane Sandy Relief Aid

The House finally approved on the aid, almost two months after the storm and only a day after John Boehner was voted back in office as House Speaker. Boehner being the guy who made the decision to delay the vote earlier this week. “It’s the right step,” said Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-N.J., a member of the House Appropriations Committee. This aid with assist in the pay-out of insurance claims for home as well as business owners whose property was wrecked during the storm. People of course are still waiting on claim checks from the storm. “They’re sleeping in rented rooms on cots somewhere, and they’re not happy. They want to get their lives back on track, and it’s cold outside. They see no prospect of relief,” said Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-N.J., whose district includes Atlantic City. Let’s hope now that people can get their lives back to normal now that this has been approved. Drop down bottom for more. JaaiR (JR)
