Senator Lankford Supports Bill to Provide Disaster Aid to Oklahoma
WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) issued the following statement on H.R. 2157 Disaster Supplemental funding, which includes supplemental funding for flooding and tornado damage caused by severe storms in Oklahoma and across the Midwest this week:
“Today’s vote is important for many Oklahomans as we endure a long stretch of severe storm damage across the state,” said Lankford. “The bill includes necessary funding to aid those who were already impacted by storms and the thousands more who are now watching flood waters rise. In the future, Congress should include additional yearly funding into the annual FEMA budget to make disaster assistance more transparent and predictable.”
On Wednesday, Lankford spoke on the Senate floor about the storms that hit Oklahoma on Monday and Tuesday.
