Scott Supports Emergency Aid Package in Response to Hurricane Harvey

?Washington U.S. Senator Tim Scott released the following statement after supporting a $15.25 billion aid package in response to Hurricane Harvey:

“To say the damage done by Hurricane Harvey was detrimental would be an understatement. This disaster affected thousands of families; there were so many folks who lost everything, and as they begin to recover and rebuild, our priority should be to support them as they get back on their feet,” Scott said. “However, with our nation’s ongoing budget crisis, raising the debt ceiling is far from ideal. We need to get serious about curbing our spending addiction, and get back on the right track toward fiscal responsibility.”
