Bipartisan agreement extends disaster recovery funding for Iowa flood victims


Washington, DC – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today released the following statement after Senate leaders announced a deal on a bill that temporarily funds US government operations, including support for Iowa flood recovery:


“The solutions to our nation’s problems won’t be found in partisan bickering.  That’s why I’m encouraged that, for one of the first times this year, politicians in Washington put aside their differences and put our country first.  When people in Congress do something as simple as talk to one another and are willing to work across the aisle, we can find common ground.  We’re facing some big challenges right now, and Congress must rise to the occasion.


“This budget agreement will ensure that disaster recovery work in Iowa will continue uninterrupted, and I support its passage as quickly as possible.”
