WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Senate passed a $19.1 billion dollar disaster relief bill just before breaking for Memorial Day Weekend.
The bill, H.R, 2157, passed by an 85 to 8 margin. President Trump has said he will sign the bill.
The funding includes $900 million for Puerto Rico, which Democrats had been pushing for.
It does not include $4.5 billion for humanitarian aid at the southern border, which Republicans and the White House wanted.
