House approves $50.7B Sandy aid bill

House approves $50.7B Sandy aid bill 15 Jan 2013 More than 10 weeks after Superstorm Sandy brutalized parts of the heavily populated Northeast, the House approved $50.5 billion in emergency relief for the victims Tuesday night as Republican leaders struggled to close out an episode that exposed painful party divisions inside Congress and out.

Democrats supported the aid in large numbers, while majority Republicans opposed it by a lopsided margin.
