WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 28, 2017) – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 3823, the Disaster Tax Relief and Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2017, legislation to help American families and communities impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
“To all those affected by the hurricanes, more help is on the way,” said McMorris Rodgers. “People lost their homes and cars, and some even lost their entire neighborhoods or place of work. The hurricanes wiped out people’s lives as they knew it, and this legislation provides critical tax relief to help free up resources so that Americans affected by the hurricanes can rebuild their lives. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people of Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands during this challenging time.”
