Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) applauded the Senate passage of the bi-partisan Hurricane Sandy relief package, H.R. 152. This relief legislation provides assistance to small businesses, individuals and local governments hardest hit by the storm and invests in long-term rebuilding and critical infrastructure. This bill passed the House by a vote of 241-180 on January 15 and now awaits the President’s signature.
“With Hudson Valley families, communities and businesses still facing a daunting recovery, this relief package offers long overdue assistance to those hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy,” said Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney. “We can never again allow politics to get in the way of helping Americans in need.”
