Senate OKs Sandy Funding, But Bill Future Uncertain

By Ana Radelat

Washington – A $60 billion emergency spending bill to pay for the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy was approved by the Senate today, but the final fate of the bill is very much in doubt.

Before voting 61-33 for the bill, the Senate considered more than 20 amendments that would have either stripped or added money to the package and rejected most of them.

Senators also rejected an alternative, proposed by Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., to cut the amount of aid to $23.8 billion.

Coats said his bill would provide for immediate needs but allow congressional committees time to review documentation for other, longer-term rebuilding plans.
