Greg Steube Leads GOP Push for Congress to Send Aid to Florida After Hurricane Ian

This week, U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., led a letter to the leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee urging the prioritization of an emergency supplemental appropriations package in response to the destruction of Hurricane Ian.

More than 10 Republicans in the Florida delegation, including U.S. Reps. Gus Bilirakis, Vern Buchanan, Kat Cammack, Byron Donalds, Neal Dunn, Carlos Gimenez, Brian Mast, Bill Posey, Maria Elvira Salazar, Michael Waltz and Dan Webster signed the letter.

The House members stressed that Hurricane Ian left a devastating impact on their constituents.

“As you know, this category four hurricane is one of the most catastrophic and deadly hurricanes to make landfall in Florida in the last 50 years. It has left many communities without basic needs, such as food, water, power, and shelter,” they wrote.

“We ask the House Committee on Appropriations to urgently work with the Florida delegation in drafting an emergency supplemental appropriations package as we accumulate damage assessments. We ask that you exclusively focus on recent hurricane disasters in this package, and free from any language that is not directly related to the hurricane relief and recovery efforts,” they added.
