Press Release

House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey (D-NY-17) released the following statement after House Republicans objected to passage of bicameral, bipartisan disaster relief legislation:

 “After President Trump and Senate Republicans delayed disaster relief for more than four months, it is deeply disappointing that House Republicans are now making disaster victims wait even longer to get the help they need.

 “We must pass this bicameral, bipartisan bill and we will keep working to get it through the House and onto the President’s desk.”
