AUSTIN, TEXAS – U.S. Congressman Roger Williams (R – Austin) sent a letter of support to President Donald Trump in support of Texas Governor Greg Abbott regarding the Governor’s request for a major disaster declaration for the State of Texas.

“The flooding in Central Texas in the past few weeks has been absolutely catastrophic to many families, businesses, and infrastructure. I visited the site of the FM 2900 bridge that collapsed, as well as the folks in Marble Falls, and while their spirits were high, their community was devastated,” said Rep. Williams. “I applaud the efforts of local and state officials who have shown true leadership throughout this difficult time. Unfortunately, this severe weather is ongoing, and I agree with Governor Abbott that the state has exhausted its options and a federal response is necessary. I have urged the President to quickly fulfill his request for a major disaster declaration for the State of Texas, and I will continue to support Texans in any way that I can.”
