WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), Chairman of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee, today hosted a roundtable on the Federal Highway Administration’s Emergency Relief program. This roundtable is part of a series Diaz-Balart is hosting on programs offered by the Departments of Transportation and Housing and Urban Development, including those related to disaster relief and recovery.

“As Florida and other communities continue to recover from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, it is important to educate Members of Congress on vital programs like the Federal Highway Administration's Emergency Relief program. Safe roads are a critical component in the aftermath of a natural disaster, and this program provides the federal resources to repair damaged infrastructure. From taking our kids to school to getting trucks and trailers back on the road, the Emergency Relief program plays an important role in the rebuilding process. As THUD Chairman, I'll continue to work with my colleagues on the Appropriations Committee to sustain these essential programs that get our families and communities up and running after natural disasters.”
