Prospects Good for More Federal Flood Aid
“Without question, we deserve a good bit more funding than has been provided.”
Louisiana 6TH District Congressman Garret Graves is talking about federal funding for rebuilding from the August flood. He's frustrated by what went down before Congress recessed last week, authorizing less than $500-million for Louisiana's needs.
“The Flint, Michigan, money; trying to shut down Congress; making it a Republican versus Democrat – I mean, this is people’s lives, livelihoods, futures, homes – and you’re going to try and politicize that? Come on!” he says, sarcastically.
