Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) issued the following statement on the fiscal year 2017 omnibus legislation:

Relief is finally on the way for local law enforcement agencies that have provided protection for the President. With the proposed federal funding bill, the Palm Beach County Sheriff and any other law enforcement agency that provided protection can apply for money to cover their costs.”

The Palm Beach County Sheriff and Fire Department have been shouldering the huge cost of protecting the President when he is at Mar-a-Lago with nearly 4 million dollars in overtime expenses. The Florida and New York delegations worked together to fund this measure.
