Press releases

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) released the following statement today after President Trump issued a Major Disaster Declaration for the State of Louisiana triggering the Public Assistance funds to help impacted communities recover from Tropical Storm Harvey.

“I would like to thank President Trump for directing Public Assistance funds to impacted Parishes in south Louisiana,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “However, I continue to encourage the President to designate Individual Assistance funds for citizens in Calcasieu Parish.  This storm devastated many homes and local businesses, and it’s only right that they have direct access to the tools necessary for rebuilding.”
