The White House said Obama informed Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal of the emergency declaration in a phone call Monday. The declaration makes federal funding available for emergency activities related to the storm.
However, Jindal is not satisfied with the Obama administration’s level of support for Louisiana, and in a press release called it “a very limited federal disaster declaration by the President.”
In a statement released today, The White House noted that “the declaration builds on resources already deployed by FEMA and makes Federal funding available for certain emergency activities undertaken by the state to prepare for and respond to the storm.”
The President made clear that he has directed FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate to make sure the Governors [of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi] have the resources they need as the storm approaches, and asked each Governor to identify additional needs if they arise.
Below is a copy of the letter Governor Jindal sent to President Obama.
You gotta read Jindal’s letter begging for more of that government help.
