Sen. Cruz Issues Statement on Latest OMB Hurricane Recovery Funding Proposal

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) issued the following statement regarding the administration’s proposed funding levels for hurricane and storm recovery that were released today:

“The administration must keep its repeated commitments to provide Texas with the funding it needs to recover from Hurricane Harvey. I will carefully review OMB’s latest supplemental funding request, including its justifications for the proposed spending amounts. However, the constitutional responsibility to appropriate funding resides with Congress, and I will continue to work closely with the entire Texas delegation to ensure our great state has the resources it needs to rebuild and come back stronger than ever.”
