I Heard this morning on the news, that the Bill that will provide financial assistance for Sandy storm victims is being held up because of Pork added to the Bill. This happens because some legislatures want financial favors for projects in their state before they will vote for a Bill. The writers of the Bill end up approving in order to get the votes to approve it and allow the favor project to be added to the end of their Bill. If other members of Congress disagree with the additional pork the Bill goes into debate.
