Rubio Introduces Border Security and Disaster Response Supplemental

Mar 14, 2019 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Border Security and Disaster Relief Act of 2019, which would secure our southern border and provide much-needed disaster relief. The bill includes $3.6 billion to address the emergency at the border, and $14.949 billion to respond to the 2018 natural disasters, including Florida communities devastated by Hurricane Michael. The bill provides $2.4 billion for Air Force installations, including necessary resources to rebuild Tyndall Air Force Base. The bill also includes $610 million in nutrition assistance for Puerto Rico as a result of Hurricane Maria. A summary of the bill is available here.
 
“Addressing the crisis on our southern border and helping local communities still struggling to recover from recent disasters, including communities in Florida devastated by Hurricane Michael, should not be a partisan issue,” Rubio said. “Yet Congress continues to fail the American people by ignoring the border crisis and playing politics with disaster funding at the expense of local communities. Every day Congress fails to act, the crisis at our border worsens, and we put local communities increasingly at risk of running out of the necessary resources needed to address critical issues and fully recover from recent disasters. It is time to act.”
