Congress Passes $19.1 Billion Disaster Aid Bill

On Monday the U.S. Congress approved legislation providing $19.1 billion in emergency funding for disaster recovery efforts throughout the United States including Puerto Rico, now sending it to President Donald Trump for signing into law.

Reuters reports that the final passage came as the House of Representatives voted 354-58 for the measure, which lawmakers and Trump had haggled over for months.

It was approved by the Senate late last month, and Trump has said he supports it.
