Rouzer Statement on Democrats Attempt to Play Politics with Disaster Relief

  Today, Congressman Rouzer released the statement below following his vote against H.R. 268 -- Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2019:

“The supplemental appropriations bill brought to the floor today is nothing but a political ‘gotcha’ vote designed to go after Republicans by coupling disaster relief, which includes language that I have co-authored, with a Continuing Resolution all the while knowing it will not be considered by the Senate or signed by the President.  In other words, this is nothing more than a political sham.  The right vote is ‘no.’”
