AUSTIN — Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush issued the following statement praising President Donald J. Trump and Congress for the passage and signing of close to $90 billion in disaster relief funding today:

"Texas' recovery from Hurricane Harvey continues, and today's passage of disaster funding in Congress will help the state rebuild from this storm and mitigate and prepare for the next one.

"Harvey was an unprecedented storm for Texas, but our fighting spirit is as strong as ever. I have been fighting for disaster preparedness from day one at the Texas General Land Office and will continue working to protect Texans, our economy and our national security.

"I salute our Texas congressional delegation and leaders in Congress for securing this new round of funding, which will go toward flood mitigation projects, housing and infrastructure. I want to personally thank President Trump for making sure these funds get where they are urgently needed."
