BLUMENTHAL, MURPHY STATEMENT ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF SUPERSTORM SANDY AID

WASHINGTON–U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) issued the following statement today on the House of Representatives' passage of the Superstorm Sandy aid package: 

“We commend the House of Representatives for finally voting to approve the full bipartisan aid package for victims of Superstorm Sandy. It is regrettable that it took a new session for Republican leaders in the House to put their petty partisan politics aside and provide this much-needed aid to those still struggling to return to normal after the devastating damage wrought by Sandy. We will fight to ensure that Connecticut families, businesses, and communities receive everything that they need to rebuild and to prevent future destruction, including investing in infrastructure, transmission systems, and flood control projects that will reduce damage and human tragedy after future storms.”
