Congressional Delegation to tour damaged areas
Senator Shelby said, “I believe this is an important opportunity to show my colleagues the extent of the devastation that Alabama and the Gulf Coast experienced from Hurricane Katrina. As we consider additional relief packages to meet the specific needs of communities across the Gulf Coast, it is critical that Senators witness the devastation first-hand.”
In addition to Senators Shelby, Frist and Reid, the following Senators will visit the region: Senator Max Baucus (D-MT), Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS), Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY), Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT), Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Senator David Vitter (R-LA), and Senator John Warner (R-VA).
