Indiana Appealing FEMA Denial Of Disaster Aid

Governor Mike Pence is appealing the Federal Emergency Management Agency's denial of Indiana's request for a major disaster declaration due to the winter storm that dumped a foot or more of snow on parts of the state.

State officials are seeking federal grants for government and certain nonprofit organizations in 49 counties to cover costs from the January storm.

If approved, the public assistance grants would pay 75 percent of expenses for damages to roads, bridges and utilities, debris removal, damage to buildings and emergency protective measures like traffic control and rescue operations.
