Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) released the following statement on the Hurricane Sandy supplemental:

"I supported appropriate emergency funding for the victims of Sandy, the devastating hurricane that hit the east coast in October. The bill I supported would have provided $24 billion in immediate emergency assistance to help to get people back on their feet and help affected communities. During this time of record debt and deficits, I could not support the Sandy Appropriations bill offered by the Democrats, which breaks the budget agreement Congress established just last year. Although this bill calls for $60.4 billion, only $19 billion would actually go to FEMA's Disaster Relief Fund. Rather than providing immediate, emergency assistance, the majority of the funding - $39 billion - would not even be spent until FY 2015 or later."
