Today, Speaker Ryan signed bipartisan legislation that will send much-needed aid to the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and parts of Louisiana. He was joined by Republicans and Democrats from those states.
As Speaker Ryan said earlier this week, “Nothing can really capture just how big and wide this devastation is. You hear a lot of numbers. Tens of thousands of people in shelters. Hundreds of thousands of homes damaged.”
When fellow Americans are in need, we must help. That’s why it was so important for Congress to act—and act quickly—to deliver relief. Now this relief package goes to President Trump’s desk.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with the people of Florida as Hurricane Irma moves through the region.
