Congress passes $19.1 bln disaster aid bill, sends to Trump

WASHINGTON, June 3 (Reuters) - The U.S. Congress on Monday approved legislation providing $19.1 billion in emergency funding for disaster recovery efforts throughout the United States including Puerto Rico, sending it to President Donald Trump for signing into law.

Final passage came as the House of Representatives voted 354-58 for the measure, which lawmakers and Trump had haggled over for months. It was approved by the Senate late last month, and Trump has said he supports it. (Reporting by Susan Cornwell; Editing by Sandra Maler)
