Less than 72 hours after failing to vote on a $60.4 billion Sandy aid bill, the House has approved a "scaled back" version of the bill, to the tune of $9.7 billion.
The bill allows Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to pay out insurance claims to those who held federal flood insurance.
According to the Associated Press:
Friday's 354-67 vote sends the bill to the Senate, which expects to pass the bill later in the day. All of the no votes were cast by Republicans.
Lawmakers in Washington are expected to weigh in on the remaining $51 billion in broader relief funding on Jan. 15, according to CNN.
