White House says it is determining best way to get Texas recovery funds

ON BOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) - The White House is still determining the best mechanism to ensure Texas gets the funding it needs to recover from Tropical Storm Harvey, spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Tuesday.

Asked whether the White House would seek an emergency spending request from the U.S. Congress, Sanders told reporters on Air Force One that the administration first needed to determine how much money was needed and then would establish the best way to get it.
