“Our citizens don’t have time to wait to begin the difficult work of hurricane recovery,” Kennedy said. “If our local leaders want to seek short term financing while the state, FEMA, and Congress engage in their usual tug-of-war over how much and when, we are ready to work with them and act quickly.”
