Billy Long votes against Hurricane Sandy disaster relief for New York, New Jersey
Seventh District Congressman Billy Long was one of 180 representatives to vote against the package, which passed today by a 241-180 margin.
Long was not alone in his opposition to the $60 billion package. He was joined by fellow Missouri Republicans Vicky Hartzler, Sam Graves, Blaine Luetkemeyer, and Ann Wagner.
The only Missouri legislator to vote for the package was Democrat Lacy Clay.
Emanuel Cleaver and JoAnn Emerson were absent.
