House Approves Chilean Relief


The measure was introduced Tuesday by acting Ways and Means Chairman Sandy Levin (D-Mich.) and ranking member Dave Camp (R-Mich.).
 
“After seeing the immense devastation caused by the earthquakes in Chile and Haiti, we all want to ensure that the American people can join together to express our support and our alliance with the people of these two countries,” said Levin in prepared remarks.
 
Camp added, ““I hope it will be promptly passed by the Senate and get the President’s signature.”
 
It is unclear when the Senate will take up the measure.
