Stand-Alone Disaster Bill Comes Up Short in Senate : Roll Call News

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid failed to win the 60 votes needed to take up a House-passed bill that he wanted to use as the vehicle for emergency disaster relief.

The Nevada Democrat sought to provide $7 billion in disaster funding and said on the Senate floor that the money is urgently needed, arguing that emergencies have been declared in 48 states.

The Majority Leader fell seven votes shy of the 60 needed to proceed to the measure, picking up six Republicans. But 14 Senators did not vote, including six Democrats.

NY-NJ Trail Conference

Updated August 30, 2011

We remind hikers that many parks in our region are closed and that trails may have newly hazardous conditions. Further, access to many trail heads is cut off owing to bad road conditions, including road and bridge washouts, continued flooding, blowdowns. Check NYS Dept of Transportation Latest News for their assessments and lists of closed state roads.

Anyone–including trail supervisors and maintainers–considering heading to trails in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene should be cautious about the following:

road flooding and washouts

unusually high and fast stream flows on or near trails

trail bridge washouts

leaning trees and hanging branches

loose boulders and rocks

Please report hazardous trail situations here.
