September 1, 2017
Press Release

"When Hurricane Sandy crippled New York and New Jersey in 2012, I will never forget Americans coming together to help their neighbors, and many of my colleagues who offered prayer, kind words, and support for federal assistance. 

"When disasters strike, we must put political disagreements aside and come together as Americans to recover and rebuild.  Despite the refusal of Texas’ Senators and many representatives to stand by the people of New York and New Jersey, I stand ready and willing to help our fellow Americans and their communities in need of federal assistance."
