WASHINGTON (PIX11) – Next week’s vote for $51 billion in aid for Sandy victims in New York and other states is now in jeopardy.

The bill needs five more Republican votes to be approved in the House.

The senate, which is controlled by Democrats, is expected to pass the measure.

President Obama signed a separate $9.7 billion bill to help Sandy victims over the weekend.
