TIFTON, GA – Today, Congressman Austin Scott (GA-08) issued the following statement on the disaster assistance delay in the House:

“While political games over disaster assistance continued this morning as a Member from Texas blocked a disaster aid package from getting to the President’s desk today, one thing is clear: This package has broad bipartisan support.
