Over $50 billion in aid for Superstorm Sandy victims is being delayed due to ongoing negotiations in the Senate over filibuster rules.

Democrats and Republicans have not yet agreed on limiting the use of filibusters which requires 60 votes to move bills to a final vote.

Republicans want to clear this issue before the Sandy bill reaches the floor.

The bill is the same legislation the House passed January 15th.
