Office of Disaster Assistance
Field Operations Center -- East
U.S. Small Business Administration
101 Marietta Street Northwest, Suite 700

Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Dear Mr. Skaggs:
We write today to ask for your expedited approval of Governor Mitch Daniels' request that the U.S. Small Business Administration's Disaster Loan Program be implemented in Porter County, Indiana.

As a result of severe storms and a tornado that occurred on August 19, 2009, the Town of Chesterton and the surrounding communities sustained serious damage, and we fully support the Governor's request.

The Governor has certified that at least 25 homes and or businesses have sustained at least a 40 percent uninsured loss compared to their fair replacement value, and debris continues to be cleared. Based upon this damage, timely assistance is essential to ensure that the homes and businesses impacted are able to recover in a suitable manner.

We respectfully urge you to approve the Governor's request as quickly as possible, and appreciate your serious attention to this matter. We look forward to working with you in any way to ensure that those affected receive the appropriate assistance.

Sincerely,
Sen. RICHARD LUGAR
Sen. EVAN BAYH
Rep. PETER J. VISCLOSKY
Rep. JOE DONNELLY
