    House to take up Sandy aid bill on Friday - David Rogers - POLITICO.com
    I will be following this bill throughout the day and will update this thread as it makes its way through the House and the Senate. Please give thoughts and flames as need be.

    Starting out with nearly 10 billion in funding is both responsible and prudent. It is certainly better than throwing 60 billion up in the air and hoping that it lands where it is needed.

    Maybe he can donate some of his McDonald's budget to make up the difference.

    From his statement yesterday I believe he will be very pleased if the bill passes today. 100%? Of course not. I would like him, as well as Schmer, and King, to stand in front of a mike at the end of the day but expect he, they, won't. King might.

    Rep. Pallone stated that his understanding is that the Senate is mired in filibuster debate for the next three weeks. There is also a week long break coming up at some point.

    I have not heard any word from the Senate how they will take up this bill once the House passes it.

    (I am way behind on viewing delay.)
