Frequently Asked Questions

Does Chris support federal disaster relief like the Hurricane Katrina relief package?

Chris supports disaster relief efforts for massive tragedies like Katrina. This is part of the proper role of the federal government. However, fraud, waste, abuse and misspent funds must never be allowed.

Disaster relief MUST reach the intended beneficiaries, and we MUST be responsible with taxpayer dollars. Relief dollars that are wasted on no-bid contracts are dollars that do not reach their intended beneficiaries—victims of natural disasters.
