WASHINGTON– Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the following statement after the House voted to approve critical disaster relief funding for Georgians affected by Hurricane Michael, as well as other states impacted by recent natural disasters.
“While I am glad farmers in South Georgia will finally receive the critical funding needed to begin to rebuild their lives, it is absolutely unacceptable it has taken Congress this long to pass disaster relief. Hurricane Michael completely devastated millions of families, countless businesses and multiple military bases throughout the southeast, and it’s sad that partisan politics got in the way of providing quick relief to those in desperate need of help.”
The disaster relief package provides $3 billion in critical disaster relief funding for farmers recovering from Hurricane Michael. This legislation passed the U.S. Senate last month and is headed to the President’s desk to be signed into law.
