Blunt urges continued FEMA disaster recovery funding for Joplin tornado
Blunt urges continued FEMA disaster recovery funding for Joplin tornado

U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Aug. 29, 2011) — U.S. Senator Roy Blunt released the following statement regarding the reallocation of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funding in the wake of Hurricane Irene recovery efforts:

“My staff and I are regularly communicating with Joplin officials to make sure that they're getting the immediate help they need. The federal government has committed resources to help Missouri communities recover from crippling flood and tornado damage, and I expect that commitment to be fulfilled expeditiously. Recovery from hurricane damage on the East Coast must not come at the expense of Missouri's rebuilding efforts. If FEMA can't fulfill its promise to our state because we have other disasters, that's unacceptable, and we need to take a serious look at how our disaster response policies are funded and implemented.”

U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt serves as a member of the Senate Committee on Appropriations as well as the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. He currently serves as Ranking Member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies and Ranking Member of the Commerce Subcommittee on Competitiveness, Innovation, and Export Promotion.
