VP Pence Urges Congress To Act Now To Approve Disaster Relief Funds

He was joined by Iowa governor Kim Reynolds, and Senators Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley.
He met with Iowa farmers, and urged them to call out 2020 Democrat candidates, who he blames for opposing the disaster relief package.
“In Iowa alone there are estimates according to the governor’s office, according to our great team at FEMA, there’s damages in excess of one point six billion dollars,” said Pence. “Thanks to your two senators and Senator Richard Shelby on the appropriations committee those funds were actually added to a disaster assistance bill that was considered on April the first.”
Senators Ernst and Grassley, say Iowa and other Midwest states should be top priority to receive disaster aide.
