WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) led a Louisiana congressional delegation letter today to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) urging them to prioritize Louisiana’s request for supplemental disaster relief in response to Hurricanes Laura and Delta.
 
“Today marks 328 days since the disaster, and as we approach the one-year anniversary of these devastating storms, we are hopeful that OMB will acknowledge the extreme need for supplemental disaster relief and issue a formal request,” wrote the Louisiana delegation. “We respectfully urge you to expedite Louisiana’s request for supplemental disaster relief. The federal government must provide the thousands of severely impacted Americans in Southwest Louisiana with a real recovery. Our offices look forward to working with you to accomplish this mission.”
