BATON ROUGE, La. -

(The Advocate) U.S. Sens. John Kennedy and Bill Cassidy on Wednesday pressed the Trump administration for additional support for Louisiana's recovery from last year's historic floods, our partners at The Advocate report. 

Kennedy, R-Madisonville, and Cassidy, R-Baton Rouge, met with Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney to seek a disaster funding component in a coming budget measure, according to a news release from Kennedy's office.

The federal government is currently operating under a stop-gap spending measure that runs out April 28. Congress is weighing an extension that would fund the government through the end of the budget cycle in September.
