“It is my intent to include critical disaster relief funding on the CR legislation that will be introduced as early as this week," he said in a statement. 

"While the details of the CR are still being worked out, it is clear that this legislation is a timely and efficient way to get critical emergency funds out the door and to the communities and families that have been devastated by recent natural disasters," he said.

"I would ask Leader Reid to provide members of the House with the details of his request and a breakdown of what immediate funding is needed for each of the specific disaster areas listed above, so that the House can appropriately act on any legislation passed by the Senate," House Majority Leader Eric CantorEric CantorEric Cantor offering advice to end ‘immigration wars’ Trump's olive branch differs from the golden eras of bipartisanship After divisive rally, Trump calls for unity MORE (R-Va.) said last week.
