With very little debate, Congress approved an emergency appropriation bill to meet immediate needs arising from the consequences of Hurricane Katrina. The bill was introduced in the House on Sept. 7, and referred to the Budget and Appropriations Committees. The following afternoon, Rep. Jerry Lewis (R.-Calif.) moved to suspend the rules and pass the bill. The bill passed by a vote of 410-11 and was sent to the Senate, where it was approved 97-0 the same day.
