“We cannot create more barriers to funding for states that are chronically impacted by natural disasters,” Mullin said. “Money for constructing safe rooms or upgrading buildings to better withstand the threats of tornadoes and hurricanes should not be held hostage by the administration’s liberal ideology.”
