WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of Homeland Security Committee and a senior member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, released the below statement following the House passage of initial supplemental funding for Hurricane Harvey relief. 

Congressman McCaul: “I am pleased the House has quickly approved the first of several promised aid packages to help Texans recover and rebuild after Harvey’s devastation. This initial down payment is just the beginning, and I look forward to continuing to work with the President and my colleagues to ensure Texas has the resources it needs to help those who have lost so much. After being on the ground in Houston last week, meeting with evacuees, thanking our local heroes, assessing the damage, and providing my assistance, I have never been more proud of my state and country. The heart, strength, and determination of Texans, coupled with the outpouring support from Americans across the country, reminds us all that Texas will be stronger than ever before.”
