Rep. Sessions to Newsmax: Federal Response to Ian Must Be Effective

It will be up to the federal government, not just Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, to help the state recover from the hard blow it took from Hurricane Ian, Rep. Pete Sessions, whose state of Texas took a similar hard hit from Hurricane Harvey in 2017, said Saturday on Newsmax. 

“Gov. DeSantis has a partner, and that partner is with the federal government,” the Republican congressman said on Newsmax’s “Saturday Report.” “The federal relationship with the state of Florida and South Carolina — let’s not forget them — is very important.”

The attention is not only on the Federam Emergency Management Agency as the storm recovery continues, but it’s now on President Joe Biden, as it has been on other presidents, to lead, to effectively work through red-tape issues, to get help out quickly to where it is needed and then “to control that relationship that is so important with the states,” said Sessions.
