Locals react to disaster relief bill finally being passed


PANAMA CITY, Fla. – After two failed votes in Congress, the disaster relief bill President Trump signed into law is met with enthusiasm among local leaders, but locals who went through the storm say it’s too little, too late.

In addition to the funding provided to HUD and other housing organizations, City Manager Mark McQueen says money from the bill will also go to the Department of Agriculture to help local timber crops, among funding other departments that will help Bay County.
