The House of Representatives passed a $9.7 billion Hurricane Sandy aid bill by a 354-67 vote on Friday. The Senate is expected to pass the measure later Friday and send it to President Barack Obama.
All "no" votes came from Republicans.
According to AP, the bill gives more borrowing authority to the National Flood Insurance Program to pay about 115,000 pending claims.
Northeast lawmakers say the money is urgently needed for victims of one of the worst storms ever to strike the region.
