Obama request for Sandy aid could face hurdles

FILE - In this Oct. 31, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama, accompanied by members of his Cabinet, speaks at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Headquarters in Washington to discuss Superstorm Sandy. From second left are Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan. Obama on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012 asked Congress for $60.4 billion in federal aid for New York, New Jersey and other states hit by Superstorm Sandy in late October. It's a disaster whose cost is rivaled only by the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the 2005 Hurricane that devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
