U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, who spent last week touring Nebraska flood damage and helping initial recovery efforts, issued the following statement regarding disaster aid legislation that was released today that expands eligibility for 2019 flood relief. 

“Nebraskans are resilient and tough. We’re going to rebuild by loving our neighbors and rolling up our sleeves. While the most important work is going to happen at home in our communities, it’s good to have federal help. I’m grateful for the initial down payment in this disaster aid bill. Our state has a long road to recovery, but Nebraskans will get the job done.”
