The House of Representatives voted today to approve a $7.9 billion disaster relief package for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. This would be the first of many relief bills addressing the destruction in southern Texas.
The package was overwhelmingly approved on a vote of 419-3.
The three opposing votes were all Republicans: Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Justin Amash of Michigan.
The Senate plans to vote on the measure by the end of the week.
