STATEMENT OF U.S. SENATOR HERB KOHL ON FEMA's DECISION TO DENY DISASTER AID FOR WISCONSIN COMMUNITIES HIT BY TORNADOES
I am disappointed by FEMA's decision to deny disaster assistance to those Wisconsin communities who are truly in need as a result of the August 18th tornadoes. These tornadoes had a devastating impact on the lives and businesses of the area. I support Gov. Doyle's appeal and will continue to work with the Wisconsin delegation to make sure the Federal government plays a role in helping the affected communities recover.
