Westerman Votes for FEMA Bills

May 3, 2017

Over the last week, Arkansans have seen nature’s wrath bring death and destruction to the Natural State. We mourn those lost and will continue to work with the families who have suffered both emotional and physical damage.

Bills approved by the House this week would streamline both federal disaster declarations as well as FEMA grant programs through modernization. As we know in Arkansas, it is never a question of if, but when a natural disaster will strike and this legislation will make improvements to the agency tasked with recovery efforts.
