Braley supports bill that extends flood recovery funding for Iowa
Washington, DC – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today released the following statement after voting for a temporary budget bill that funds government operations through November 18th with a 1.5 percent across-the-board cut in government spending. The bill includes continued funding for Iowa flood recovery and disaster relief nationwide.
“I support this bipartisan bill because it ensures Iowa families hurt by flooding will keep getting the help they need to recover. Getting people back on their feet after a disaster is one of the basic responsibilities of government, and this bill allows the federal government to follow through on its commitment to thousands of Iowans affected by floods in recent years.
“I sincerely hope that the brief ray of bipartisanship that allowed this bill to pass will continue, because the solutions to our nation’s problems won’t be found in partisan bickering.”
