“I do not remember a time where flooding in my state has been worse . . . I urge you to approve this request” – Senator Jerry Moran

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today urged President Trump to expeditiously approve of Kansas Governor Laura Kelly’s request for federal disaster relief and emergency protective measures, noting that “nearly half of Kansas’ 105 counties are part of a state of disaster declaration.”

“Governor Kelly has submitted a request to you for federal disaster relief and emergency protective measures, including rescue support and shelter management support,” wrote Sen. Moran. “I urge you to support and approve this request. Volunteers are working diligently alongside local, state and federal officials to provide emergency assistance to those in need. However, state and local resources are strained. Additional federal assistance is needed to aid the recovery and help prevent further damage caused by the flooding.”
