WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- President Barack Obama asks for $60.4 billion in aid for states hit by Superstorm Sandy.
This adds a new item to the end-of-year congressional agenda already packed with controversy.
Lawmakers from New York, New Jersey and other states had requested significantly more money, but generally praised the request Friday. They're urging Congress to adopt it without delay.
The money request would help homeowners, businesses and local governments affected by Sandy.
Superstorm Sandy is blamed for at least 125 deaths.
