Graves Statement on Gov. Edwards Restore Proposal
We strongly support the governor's action today to increase federal financial assistance to flood victims and will continue to work with HUD, the state and the Restore Program to speed the distribution of recovery funding to impacted homeowners so that they can get back in their homes and return to some degree of normalcy.
Importantly, the increase in payments will not jeopardize federal funding available in the Restore program to compensate Duplication of Benefits victims once the U.S. Senate acts on our legislation (learn about our bill ---> https://garretgraves.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/gravess-legislation-fix-duplication-benefits-clears-house-second-time).
We commend Governor Edwards for acting.
