A measure providing an additional $51 billion in recovery funding from Superstorm Sandy cleared the U.S. House Tuesday. The final vote was 241-180 , with fiscal conservatives criticizing the level of spending and pressing for cuts in other areas of the federal budget.
The package divided North Carolina’s congressional delegation – with four House Democrats supporting the storm relief bill and the state’s nine Republicans voting against the measure.
Several of those Republican members had voted earlier this month to support $9.7 billion  in spending to replenish the federal government’s flood insurance fund.
Here’s how North Carolina’s House delegation voted Tuesday:
Rep. Renee Ellmers – 2nd District
Rep. Walter Jones – 3rd District
Rep. Virginia Foxx – 5th District
Rep. Howard Coble – 6th District
Rep. Richard Hudson – 8th District
Rep. Robert Pittenger – 9th District
Rep. Patrick McHenry – 10th District
Rep. Mark Meadows – 11th District
Rep. George Holding – 13th District
