Mr. GIBSON. Mr. Speaker, I want to add my voice to those who have spoken here tonight. We need to be there for all of those in need now after Hurricane Sandy.
I come from upstate New York, and this is a bipartisan effort. I just want to thank all my colleagues here in this House who helped my district after Hurricanes Irene and Lee. We had heartbreaking and devastating losses all across the region, and this body came together to provide the requisite help so that we could begin that long road to recovery.
And we need to be there for all of the American people who need help after storms. And now for Hurricane Sandy, we need to come together and ask the Speaker to reconsider to have this aid so that we can get this aid so that we can help this country get back up on track.
