Washington - A long-awaited $50.5 billion Hurricane Sandy-relief bill is heading to President Obama for his signature—and with that comes the start of competition for the money among the governors of Connecticut, New York and New Jersey, as well as governors of other states.

“The real fight is just beginning, and we must make sure Connecticut gets its fair share,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.

The Sandy relief bill was approved by the Senate 62-36 today after senators rebuffed an attempt to require its $50.5 billion cost to be offset by cuts to federal programs.

Blumenthal said Connecticut’s request to the White House—$3.2 billion—is “relatively small” and likely to be approved by federal agencies that will now distribute billions of dollars to Sandy-hit states.
