Cantor says no strings attached to disaster fund
Cantor says he never suggested disaster funds for Hurricane Irene's victims should be held up
By The Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ' House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says he never suggested that disaster funds for victims of Hurricane Irene should be held up by budget concerns.

The Virginia Republican told reporters after meeting constituents on Wednesday in Richmond that the House has already found sufficient savings to provide billions in dollars in disaster relief for victims of Irene, the hurricane that pummeled the East Coast this past weekend.

Cantor says it is the Democratic-led Senate that is holding up legislation that would authorize funds for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.



He adds: "There are no strings attached. We found the money."

Cantor also says he has no problem welcoming President Barack Obama to address a joint session of Congress next week on jobs.
