Landrieu: House Should Come Back Now and Pass Sandy Relief Bill

January 2, 2013

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., today released the following statement after the House of Representatives announced late last night that it would not consider the bipartisan Senate-passed Sandy Supplemental recovery bill in the 112th Congress. The Senate passed its version on Dec. 30, 2012, by a vote of 62 - 32, with the support of both Louisiana senators.

"I'm extremely disappointed that the House has foregone considering the Sandy relief bill in the 112th Congress to help communities recover that were hit by disasters in 2012, particularly in the Northeast," Sen. Landrieu said. "The bipartisan Senate-passed bill not only included robust funding but also critical reforms and tools to help communities recover in a faster, smarter, more cost-effective manner. When disasters strike, Americans count on their government to quickly respond. The House of Representatives should come back and finish the job."
