Kustoff Applauds President Trump’s Approval of Disaster Declaration for the State of Tennessee
WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Congressman David Kustoff (TN-08), applauded President Trump’s decision to issue a major disaster declaration for the state of Tennessee.
In March, Rep. Kustoff sent a letter to President Trump asking him to quickly approve Governor Lee’s request for a major disaster declaration for the state of Tennessee to help 58 counties impacted by flooding and severe weather in February and March.
“I am grateful to President Trump for issuing a major disaster declaration and providing support from the federal government to ensure the thousands of Tennesseans impacted receive the assistance they desperately need. This money will be used to address the costs of the damage and mitigate against future flooding across the state. I will continue to do all I can to ensure the residents hurt by this severe flooding have all the resources they need to fully rebuild,” said Rep. Kustoff.
