Wednesday - 1/16/2013, 2:40am EST
By The Associated Press
(AP) - The House on Tuesday passed a $50.5 billion package of recovery and related aid for Superstorm Sandy and other disasters. It was divided into two parts: a $17 billion base bill for immediate recovery needs from the late October storm, and a $33.5 billion amendment for longer-term recovery efforts and projects to curb damages from future disasters.
A look at its main provisions:
_$5.4 billion for New York and New Jersey transit systems.
_$5.4 billion for the Federal Emergency Management Agency's disaster relief aid fund.
_$1.35 billion for Army Corps of Engineers projects.
_ $3.9 billion for the Housing and Urban Development Department's community development fund for Sandy recovery projects.
_$235 million for repairs and renovations at Veterans Affairs Department facilities.
_$143 million to the Coast Guard for damages by Sandy.
LONGER-TERM AID AMENDMENT
_$10.9 billion for New York and New Jersey transit system recovery projects.
_$12.1 billion for Housing and Urban Development Department community block grants for Sandy and other federally declared disasters in 2011-13.
_$3.4 billion for Army Corps of Engineers projects for Sandy-related damage and protections against future storms.
_ $2 billion for the Federal Highway Administration's emergency relief program to repair storm-damaged federal highways.
_$290 million for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, much of it for programs and equipment to improve weather forecasting.
