    Washington Week [#5709] As Hurricane Harvey dissipates, the recovery effort in Texas is just beginning. The Category 4 storm dropped more than 50 inches of rain near Houston and killed dozens of people. Tens of thousands of people have been forced from their homes as the city begins to dry out.
    Early estimates put the cleanup costs as high as $200 billion. How is the federal government responding to what may be the costliest natural disaster in American history?
    President Trump was on the ground in Texas on Monday to pledge his support for the recovery, but a fight is looming on Capitol Hill to approve the spending. The Texas congressional delegation is facing pushback from their Northeastern colleagues who are still upset about opposition to Hurricane Sandy recovery spending five years ago. Mr. Trump's Republican allies in the House are also considering transferring nearly $1 billion from FEMA's disaster relief efforts to pay for the president's long-promised border wall.
    Robert Costa will discuss the long cleanup process and the government's response with:
    Abby Livingston of The Texas Tribune
    Philip Rucker of The Washington Post
    Geoff Bennett of NPR
    Jeanne Cummings of The Wall Street Journal
