"A House-passed bill aimed at helping communities impacted by a string of recent natural disasters cleared a key hurdle in the Senate on Monday evening.
Senators voted 79-16 to advance on the bill, setting up a final vote as soon as Tuesday.
All of the 16 "no" votes came from GOP senators, including Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
The House bill would provide $36.5 billion to fund hurricane relief, a flood insurance program and wildfire recovery efforts in the West."
