Additional Funding for Texas Recovery
This week I joined 30 members of the Texas delegation to pass the second disaster supplemental appropriations bill which ensures there is no gap in the flow of federal funding following Hurricane Harvey. The bill provides a total of $36.5 billion in funding to help Houstonians continue recovery, including $18.7 billion for the Disaster Relief Fund and $16 billion in existing debt forgiveness for the National Flood Insurance Program. Texas is expected to receive at least $15 billion of this funding.

The Texas delegation remains committed to helping Texans and to ensuring tragedies like these do not happen again," Rep. Culberson said.
