Torrential Rains Bring Historic Floods To Southern Louisiana

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards says he can't wrap his head around Congress not approving a tax relief package for victims of last year's historic flooding. He says more than 193,000 homes and businesses were damaged in South Louisiana.

Lawmakers approved a tax relief package for victims of this year's three major hurricanes.

Senator John Kennedy says he's onboard with trying to obtain similar tax relief for the August 2016 flood victims.
