May 10, 2019
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Ted S. Yoho (R-FL) released the following statement after the House voted on H.R. 2157 - Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2019:

“We are two hundred days and counting since Hurricane Michael hit Florida and there are still Floridians in need. The bill that we voted on today was nothing more than a spending wish list for Democrats and it had little to do with disaster relief.  A tiny portion of the $17 billion would go towards aiding those affected by Hurricane Michael. I, like the Trump administration, could not in good conscience support this bill. If we are going to vote on disaster relief, it should be done as a stand-alone bill.”
