Supports Christian Housing Relief Project

Kevin McCarthy and Pastor Steve Truitt of the “Christian Housing Relief Project” announced that a major roadblock has been cleared to allow 50 modular homes to be delivered to families in the Gulf Coast. “Government shouldn’t stand in the way of neighbors helping neighbors,” McCarthy said. “By waiving these state fees, the ‘Christian Housing Relief Project’ and other groups will be able to assist the Gulf Coast without incurring financial burden.”
