Hensarling Statement On Approved Aid For Hurricane Harvey Destruction
WASHINGTON–U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling (TX-5) released the following statement after the House of Representatives approved an emergency aid package for Hurricane Harvey destruction:
“I’ve seen emergencies arise from natural disasters before, and I’ve seen how this funding scenario can grow in size and shrink in focus. We need to provide emergency spending to get people out of harm’s way and provide an appropriate safety net. Rebuilding, as important as it is, should not go through an emergency funding process that exacerbates our dangerous and unstable national debt.
