More than $50 billion dollars has been approved by the Senate to help rebuild the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy.

The bill was passed by a vote of 62-36.

According to CNN, the bill helps bring money to home and business owners who are still rebuilding, along with providing funds to improve infrastructure, hospitals and transit systems for future storms.

Hurricane Sandy struck New York and New Jersey on October 29th, causing damages of $42 and $37 billion dollars in damage to the states.

State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver says the approval is great news, saying, “Although those impacted by this disaster waited far too long, this is crucial assistance that will greatly impact rebuilding efforts.”
