"A Democratic-led Senate panel dramatically increased federal disaster aid in the wake of Hurricane Irene and FEMA's budget shortfalls, setting up an almost certain showdown with the GOP-controlled House whose leaders have sought to limit disaster help unless it can be offset with spending cuts elsewhere in the federal budget. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is expected to run out of disaster aid in a matter of months, and it has already begun to prioritize which victims will receive federal assistance."
