Governor Abbott Statement On U.S. Senate Vote To Approve Hurricane Harvey Funding

AUSTIN - Governor Greg Abbott today released the following statement after the United States Senate voted to allocate $15.25 billion as an initial down payment to Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.


“Hurricane Harvey proved to be a devastating storm for the State of Texas, and the commitment by Congress to ensuring our citizens have every available resource behind us as we recover is imperative,” said Governor Abbott. “The response by the federal government has been swift and effective, and the passage of a bill allocating an initial down payment for recovery and rebuilding is a continuation of their assurances to stand firm with Texas. I thank the U.S. Senate & members of both parties for working to secure funding to help Texas rebuild from Hurricane Harvey.”
