Representatives Huizenga, Amash vote against storm relief

Both West Michigan Congressmen say the aid should have been paid for by reducing other spending.
GRAND RAPIDS, MI - U.S. Reps. Justin Amash and Bill Huizenga both voted against $50.7 billion in additional federal Superstorm Sandy relief on Tuesday, Jan. 15. The aid package passed the U.S. House by a vote of 241-180 in a late vote that followed hours of debate on the hefty supplement to $9.7 billion in aid OK'd in early January.
