The government agency has explained the need as a result of the costs of protecting the president while he's on the road, and to ratchet up the security at Trump Tower in NY.

An additional $23 million would specifically go toward covering the costs of outfitting Trump Tower with the necessary equipment and personnel, as well as to rent space inside the building for agency personnel, according to a Homeland Security official who was familiar with the funding bill but not yet authorized to discuss it. Members are expected to vote on the new bill this week.

"We are getting what we are owed", de Blasio said in a statement released by his office.

Before his inauguration on January 20, Trump lived and worked at his Manhattan headquarters Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue.

Though President Donald Trump has spent little time in his hometown since being elected, his family remains here and the cost to protect them had ballooned to more than $26 million, according to local politicians who had repeatedly called on Congress to reimburse the city.

"This is a huge victory for Palm Beach County taxpayers, who should never have been on the hook for President Trump's weekend getaways", Deutch said in a statement about the Palm Beach, Fla., resort.

The outlay allocates $20 million for costs incurred between the election and the inauguration, and $41 million for expenses since January 20.

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio thanked New York's lawmakers for helping pass the measure.

But the Trump family setup has been heavily criticized, especially when it was revealed that the City of NY had been spending millions on security for Melania Trump and Barron Trump.

New York's famous Fifth Avenue, the home of Trump Tower and the president's NY address, is lined with metal police barricades for crowd control. That figure more than doubles to an average cost of $308,000 per day whenever the president is in town.

The security costs are unpopular in the largely Democratic-voting city.

About half of the money, almost $60 million, is earmarked for the Secret Service, with most of the funds going toward protecting the president while traveling and security for Trump Tower in New York City, according to legislation being circulated Monday.

NY is bracing for President Donald Trump's first trip back to his hometown since taking office in January in a Thursday visit that is expected to draw protests and snarl traffic in the United States' most populous city.
