Boehner sets Sandy aid vote for Jan. 15 after heavy criticism for recent inaction
(MCT) — WASHINGTON—House Speaker John A. Boehner on Wednesday set a Jan. 15 vote on a Superstorm Sandy relief bill after enraged Northeast lawmakers—including Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, a fellow Republican—blasted the speaker for skipping action on disaster aid in the final hours of the current Congress.
Boehner scheduled the vote after a parade of officials from storm-ravaged New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, led by Christie, criticized Boehner for refusing to allow a vote on a $60-billion aid package.
