Cassidy Statement on President Biden Visit to Louisiana

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) today released a statement on President Biden’s planned visit to Louisiana on Friday to survey Hurricane Ida damage and recovery efforts.

“We thank President Biden for coming down to help him understand the magnitude of the situation here in southeast Louisiana. We know from bitter experience with Hurricane Laura that aid can be delayed too long,” said Dr. Cassidy. “We thank the federal partners who are already here helping with the recovery, and we will ask the President once again that supplemental aid be delivered to southwest Louisiana and expedited for southeast Louisiana.”
