Rubio Asks FBI to Share Assistance Info After Pulse Shooting

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is asking the FBI to share more information with local agencies offering assistance to victims of the Pulse gay nightclub shooting.

Rubio's office on Tuesday released a letter sent to FBI Director James Comey last month asking for reforms.

The letter says some victims had their assistance delayed because the FBI didn't share information with the city of Orlando.

Rubio says many victims of the shooting or their families filled out forms they believed would start the process of getting help for paying rent, funeral arrangements and other assistance. The forms had logos of both the FBI and city.

But Rubio says the FBI informed the city the agency wouldn't share the intake forms since they were part of the investigation into the shooting.
