House approves $4.9 billion stimulus package

The House on Tuesday approved $4 billion in new stimulus legislation for states and localities, a package that would provide aid to address the effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The package also includes billions to help pay for Hurricane Sandy recovery and flood-protection upgrades.

The bill, known as the National Flood Insurance Program, was passed with little opposition and was passed along party lines, with the support of Democrats and Republicans.

The White House had said it would not oppose the package, which was the first major federal spending package to be signed into law by President Donald Trump.

“We have the support from both parties in Congress to ensure the flood insurance is in place, that we have adequate funding to keep the roads safe, that FEMA is able to keep on top of what is a rapidly unfolding disaster,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at the time.

“The president and the president’s administration have been extremely clear that we want to make sure that we do everything we can to get relief to all Americans.”

The package includes $1.1 trillion for FEMA and the states, $400 million for local governments to provide hurricane preparedness, $200 million for federal emergency aid, and $80 million for other disaster relief.

It also includes $600 million for an expanded federal workforce, a $400,000 stimulus fund to help states rebuild their roads and bridges, and a $1 billion loan guarantee for the states.

The federal government has pledged $4 trillion for reconstruction, with about $2 trillion in funding in the first phase of the Harvey relief package.

The other $1 trillion package will provide $400 billion for rebuilding roads and the rest will be distributed by states, cities, tribes, and other partners.

The $400.4 billion bill would provide about $1,500 for every eligible household in the U.S., about $400 per person, in federal disaster relief, including $400 for every household that is unemployed and without work.

It would also provide $500 per household in food assistance, $100 per household that qualifies for Medicaid and $30 per household with children that qualifies under food stamps.
