WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - This week, Republican Congressman Todd Rokita urged those affected by the flood to turn in their damages to the Department of Homeland Security.
Rokita said he wants people to get federal aid if they so choose.
In January, Rokita voted against a $50 billion plan to send relief to Hurricane Sandy victims.
He said in this case, he wants Indiana flood victims to get the aid that has already been budgeted for events like floods.
Yet, he said if any more money is to be given in relief, he wants cuts elsewhere.
"If it comes to that with this flood, I'll still offer a bill in Congress that will say, 'Hey this is what we in Indiana are willing to live without for this assistance,'" said Rokita.
Rokita said he still stands by his decision to vote against the relief aid bill.
