Washington, D.C. – Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) issued the following statement after co-sponsoring the Clean Disaster Relief Resolution, legislation that stipulates any bill that appropriates funding for emergency assistance in response to major disasters, including wildfires, be a standalone bill and not combined with any other legislative measure.

“I firmly believe that good process makes good policy.  This common-sense resolution will prevent the too-often practice of attaching poison bills to otherwise important legislation that can sabotage much need emergency relief for suffering Americans devastated by major disasters, including wildfires and drought.

Arizonans know all too well the overwhelming costs of natural disasters. Wildfires, for example, cost an average of $6.3 billion per disaster, according to the National Centers for Environmental Information.

Unfortunately, congress repeatedly loads up well-intended disaster relief funding legislation with flawed and costly provisions making it difficult for members of congress to support passage.  This long overdue resolution will allow members of congress to cast a clean vote on providing meaningful federal disaster relief without the inclusion of other unrelated legislative provisions,” concluded Congressman Gosar.
