Georgia’s senators introduced a disaster relief package worth $3 billion for Georgia farmers recovering from hurricane and wildfire damage.
David Perdue heeded the election advice I shared yesterday (no rational argument to the contrary can be made) saying in no uncertain terms congress must approve the funding now.
In a press release from Sens. Perude and Isakson, the junior senator (and Agriculture Committee member) said:
We cannot wait around for Congress to complete this year’s government funding. Federal disaster relief should be considered immediately. In October, President Trump and Vice President Pence both saw the devastation firsthand and promised to help Georgia and other states rebuild. Now, Congress has the opportunity to help them keep that promise
