"“As appropriators, we have fought for the release of the aid by questioning Secretary Carson, establishing a legal deadline for agency action, conducting an oversight hearing with HUD officials and the Inspector General, and withholding money from the Department in the most recent appropriations bill. It should never have come to this."

December 5, 2019 Press Release
"More than 2 years after Hurricane Maria destroyed their homes, businesses, and public infrastructure, the American people of Puerto Rico are still without much-needed relief and recovery assistance because of perpetual – and illegal – stonewalling by this administration."
October 17, 2019 Statement
"American communities have been waiting far too long for the relief and recovery assistance they deserve. Any further delay by HUD to facilitate CDBG-DR funds to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands is not just unacceptable, it is unlawful."
October 17, 2019 Statement
"Rather than comply with the clear statutory language in bipartisan legislation that was signed into law by the President, HUD is withholding the required Federal Register notice for Puerto Rico. The other affected states had to wait 18 months, which was bad enough, but Puerto Rico is still waiting. As everyone knows, the island was utterly devastated by back-to-back hurricanes. Nearly 3,000 people lost their loves, and tens of thousands of homes were damaged. I’ve seen first-hand the challenges that must be overcome for a full recovery and the urgent need for this funding."
September 25, 2019 Statement
"Secretary Chao has said that her number one priority at the Department of Transportation is safety. If we are going to address the root causes of the MAX crashes, then we must have a bipartisan commitment to robust funding to promote the safety of air travelers, both at home and abroad."
September 25, 2019 Statement
"This subcommittee, in particular, is responsible for allocating resources to FAA so the agency can effectively carry out its mission. This is not a partisan issue. Under the leadership of both Democrats and Republicans, we have consistently funded FAA aviation safety and certification activities at or above the levels requested by the agency. In the wake of the MAX crashes, the House-passed FY2020 THUD funding bill included a major infusion of new funding in anticipation of substantive responses required by the ongoing reviews. We need a detailed and transparent accounting from FAA about what happened, how the agency is using existing resources, and whether additional funding or other authorities are needed for FAA to remain the world leader in aviation safety."
