Sen. Stine Responds to Additional Federal Hurricane Relief Dollars Announced by LA’s Delegation
Baton Rouge, LA — Today, Senator Jeremy Stine (R-Lake Charles, LA) issued the following statement on the additional federal hurricane relief dollars announced by Louisiana’s Congressional Delegation:
“After fighting alongside our local leaders and our delegation members for supplemental disaster relief, it is great to see the federal government is finally hearing our pleas,” Stine said. “We’re tired of being a token for infrastructure and recovery without being made whole and seeing actionable results. The journey to secure this funding was long and arduous, but the unified efforts of all parties involved helped make this possible. As a member of the Legislature, we’re going to fight like hell to ensure these dollars do not get held up in Washington D.C. or Baton Rouge, and we’re going to make sure there is accountability with how these dollars are spent.”
Senator Stine has been a steadfast advocate for supplemental disaster relief prior to his election to the Louisiana State Senate. Earlier this month, he continued to echo his previous pleas on behalf of Southwest Louisiana residents in this video.
