United States : U.S. Sen. John Kennedy Issues Statement On Duplication of Benefits Guidance.

U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today after the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released guidance for implementing a solution to the duplications of benefits issue facing many Louisiana flood victims. Links to HUDs guidance are below.

Sen. Kennedy has been working to help flood victims who were denied recovery assistance if they applied for Small Business Administration loans. In April, Sen. Kennedy met privately with President Donald Trump to discuss a solution to the duplication of benefits issue that is affecting thousands of Louisiana families following the 2016 floods.

President Trump told me two months ago that he wanted to help Louisiana. I am hopeful that this guidance delivers the solution that Louisiana flood victims need, said Sen. Kennedy. Ill be reviewing it carefully to make sure it complies with Congress legislative intent. The people of Louisiana deserve the disaster relief they were promised. They shouldnt be penalized for unprecedented flooding.
