Stabenow, Levin Support Federal Flood Aid Request

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Michigan U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today welcomed Governor Snyder's state disaster declaration for Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.

"I fully support a request for federal aid as Southeast Michigan continues to experience unprecedented flooding," Stabenow said. "Thousands of families have already found their homes and businesses devastated by these treacherous conditions. Joint assistance is critical for Michigan communities to make a full recovery in the wake of this terrible disaster."

"Governor Snyder's disaster declaration is an essential step before the state can request federal assistance. When that request is made, we will work closely with FEMA and the president to process the declaration on an urgent basis," Levin said.
