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.
