Obama’s Request for Federal Aid after Superstorm Sandy Might be on Major Delay
President Obama made a request to Congress on Friday for $60.4 billion in additional federal aid as relief for the states effected by Superstorm Sandy. This comes at the year-end congressional agenda that is already filled with major decisions while facing a fiscal cliff. But the President urges this measure be considered and analyzed immediately. While the measure might advance through the Democratic-controlled Senate, a decision is sure to be delayed until next year.
