The U.S. House has passed legislation that contains funding for communities throughout the Midwest that have been affected by severe flooding.
The legislation passed the House Friday on a vote of 257-150.
Iowa Congressman Steve King voted in favor of the measure and spoke about the need for the help on the house floor:
OC…….SIDE OF THE RIVER. :22
Nebraska congressman Adrian Smith voted in favor of the measure and says he is happy the measure covers losses of stored grain:
OC…….need this relief. ;13
Smith says he realizes the bill is not perfect.
King says he encourages the Senate to work just as quickly to produce a final bill that the President will not hesitate to sign into law.
