Cornyn issues statement on passage of Disaster Aid Bill

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) on Tuesday released a statement after the Senate passed $36.5 billion in additional supplemental disaster relief funds.

Cornyn noted that Texas will continue to need assistance as it goes about recovering from Hurricane Harvey.

“While these resources are critical for Americans recovering from recent hurricanes and wildfires, Texas will need significantly more relief as we recover and rebuild from Hurricane Harvey,” Cornyn said. “I appreciate the president’s renewed commitment to meeting our state’s long-term recovery needs, and I’ll continue to work with Gov. Abbott and the Texas congressional delegation to help Texans in need.”
