WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) released the following statement after Congress received the president’s additional request for supplemental disaster relief funding:

“Congress has proven its commitment to aid those suffering from the natural disasters of the fall—from Americans in Texas, Florida, California to Americans in the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. We appreciate the president’s new funding request and value our continued partnership on this effort. The House will review the request and work with the administration and members from affected states to help the victims get the resources they need to recover and rebuild.”
