Press Release
Dec 21, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Vista) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives approved $81 billion in disaster relief, including aid for the victims of the wildfires in California this year.

 

“I’m pleased that those in San Diego County affected by the recent Lilac Fire, and throughout California, will receive the help they need so that they can begin the process of restoring their lives and rebuilding all that was lost,” said Congressman Darrell Issa. “The package approved today comes at just the right time and will provide much-needed resources to help our area recover. I thank Congressman Calvert for his leadership in getting this funding quickly approved and encourage its swift signing into law. I remain committed to ensuring everyone impacted gets the assistance they need as they recover from the destruction these fires have brought to our community.”   

 

Earlier this month, Congressman Issa joined all 53 members of the California House delegation to write asking the appropriations committee to include relief for victims of California’s wildfires in emergency disaster legislation and wrote to Members of the Conference Committee on the tax reform bill, urging its members to restore the deduction for wildfire losses to the final bill.
