Congressman Steve King releases this statement applauding the passage of House legislation that contains funding for communities throughout the Midwest that have been affected by severe flooding in the region. The legislation passed the House (Friday) on a vote of 257-150, with Congressman King voting in favor of it.
“In Iowa, we need this relief and we need it soon,” said King. “I applaud the House for acting quickly, and I encourage the Senate to work just as quickly to produce a final bill that the President will not hesitate to sign into law.”
(Thursday), Congressman King delivered a speech on the House floor encouraging the House and the Senate to act quickly to “get to a conclusion and adoption” of this legislation.
