Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Representative Keith Rothfus' [PA-12] made the following statement after the vote on H.R. 41, a bill to increase the borrowing authority of the National Flood Insurance Program.

"My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by Hurricane Sandy" stated Congressman Rothfus. "The affected areas and families need relief. However, I came to Washington to control spending in a sensible manner. The bill passed today costs almost $10 billion and adds to the deficit. My concern is that we in Congress should have worked to find a way to pay for this now.

H.R. 41 passed the House today by a vote of 354-67 and now goes to the Senate for their consideration.
