ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said it's critical to pass a disaster relief bill this week to help victims of the recent hurricanes and wildfires. "We think it's critical that we pass this legislation this week to give the people in California the support that they need to fight these fires, to help the victims, and also to help the communities still recovering and dealing with humanitarian problems with the hurricanes," Ryan said at a news briefing on Wednesday, citing Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. The $36 billion dollar package will include money for the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Disaster Relief Fund, as well as money for the National Flood Insurance Program.
