Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., sent a letter to Speaker Boehner today urging him to call a House vote on a Hurricane Sandy relief package.
"West Virginia has been hit hard by natural disasters this year. Since February, our state has suffered three events which the President has declared Major Disasters. Rural and mountainous regions were especially impacted by heavy rain and snowfall, causing prolonged road closures, school closures and power outages. Like other states that were affected by Hurricane Sandy, we need extra resources for a speedy recovery from the damages," stated Capito. "I believe the House should pass legislation to provide these much-needed resources for affected communities."
