Today the House will consider H.R. 2266, legislation providing emergency disaster relief.
The bill appropriates $36.6 billion in emergency funding broken down as follows:
$518.7 billion for the Federal Emergency Relief Disaster Fund.
$576.5 million for wildfire efforts.
$16 billion for debt relief for the National Flood Insurance Program.
Since the funds are designated “emergency” funds, they are not subject to any rules requiring the funds be offset. Instead, the money goes right into the nation's credit card.
