Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) released the statement below following the announcements that Kaua‘i and Oʻahu will receive federal support through the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) and the Department of Labor (DOL) to assist with ongoing recovery efforts from record breaking floods, landslides, and more in April 2018.
