On Friday, the U.S Senate passed a Sandy disaster relief package, and many congressional representatives said the majority support was also there to pass a bill in the House. After much criticism and pressure today, one House member says there is now a vote scheduled, one for the end of the week.</p><p> Thu, 03 Jan 2013 00:14:49 +0000 Allison Dunne 54954 at http://wamc.org Though Voting on Sandy Relief is in Sight, NY Lawmakers Still Question What Happened Rep.
