Washington, Aug 29 -

The following is a statement by House Appropriations Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen on Hurricane Harvey relief: 

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the individuals, families, and communities that have been ravaged by Hurricane Harvey. We commend FEMA, the Department of Defense, and the other federal and state agencies on the ground and so many private organizations, like the American Red Cross, for their ongoing efforts to rescue, house and assist thousands of people in need.

"My Committee stands at the ready to provide any necessary additional funding for relief and recovery. We are awaiting requests from federal agencies who are on the ground, and will not hesitate to take quick action once an official request is sent."
