House Republicans Move Quickly on Hurricane Relief

Politico: "Chastened by the debacle over Hurricane Sandy aid, House Republicans are moving quickly to win approval this week of a $9.7 billion increase in financing to pay flood insurance claims arising from the October storm... The Senate approved the same flood insurance increase last week as part of a larger $60.4 billion disaster aid package backed by the White House."

"Friday's vote is a first step to try to begin to reconstruct it now in the 113th Congress. And Boehner has promised Northeast lawmakers a second series of votes on Jan. 15 on additional aid, but more immediate action was needed on the flood insurance request."
