RELEASE:
Rep. Meadows’ Statement on Hurricane Harvey Aid

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) released the following statement after voting in support of H. Res. 502 to provide an additional $7.4 billion to the “Disaster Relief Fund" for Hurricane Harvey victims:

“As I’ve said before, the hundreds of thousands of Hurricane Harvey victims that have been left broken and homeless are in need of help, and it’s on Congress to responsibly give it to them. Today, I was proud to support the first step toward that end by voting in favor of a clean bill to provide $7.4 billion in disaster relief to those suffering in Texas and Louisiana. Moving forward, Congress would do well to keep Hurricane Harvey relief on a safe track and avoid combining pork, add-on’s, or unrelated legislative items to the bill. The people of Texas have seen their lives turned upside down. Their road ahead will be difficult enough without Washington, D.C., needlessly getting in the way by playing politics with their recovery.”
