After 2 major hurricanes have hit the United States, questions about FEMA funding have started to pop up.
After getting an update on the damage caused by Irma in St. Johns County, Local Representatives (R) Congressman John Rutherford, (R) Congressman Ron DeSantis, and (R) Senator Marco Rubio gave an update on the relief efforts there.
On the question of whether FEMA has the money, after a Hurricane Harvey aid bill was passed, Congressman Ron DeSantis replied
“The idea that this thing is going to run out of money, ya know like next week. That’s not going to happen. I mean, we’re good, for the immediate, I think response.” DeSantis says

Florida Senator Marco Rubio says he is confident, if any emergency response funding needs to be approved by congress, it will pass with strong support.
“What needs to be done, is going to be done. Its going to happen” Rubio says.
