I wanted to give you a quick update on disaster relief.
This week, Senator Isakson and I, along with several other senators, introduced a bipartisan disaster relief package. President Trump has agreed to sign it.
Our bill includes relief for agriculture and also provides additional funds for Georgia and other states like Florida, Alabama, the Carolinas, Alaska, Hawaii, and California that have battled natural disasters over the last year. It also builds on the Trump administration's past efforts and includes the remaining funding for Puerto Rico.
This bipartisan package is a win for our farmers, it's a win for families and businesses who were devastated by historic hurricanes in the Southeast and wildfires in the West, and it's a win for the people of Puerto Rico who the President has previously helped.
Time is of the essence, and we hope the Senate will vote on this bill very soon.
