Today, U.S. Senator Thad Cochran released the following statement in response to questions regarding Katrina relief:

“I was fortunate to be in a position to help us recover from Hurricane Katrina, the worst natural disaster in our state’s history. Our delegation worked together in a bipartisan manner to make sure Katrina relief legislation was passed. I was very pleased to have been a part of the successful effort, which was supported by our colleagues across the country. As I look at how local and state officials have used this money I am proud of what we did. Natural disasters can strike at any moment, and it is critical that Mississippians can count on their elected representatives to help them in times of crisis.”
