Senators Jon Tester, John Walsh and Congressman Steve Daines are asking the President to grant the State of Montana disaster assistance in response to widespread flooding.

In March, Governor Steve Bullock declared a statewide flood emergency and has recently requested disaster assistance to help mitigate the damages.

In a letter to the President today, Tester, Walsh and Daines supported Bullock’s request and asked the administration to provide financial assistance for 15 Montana counties.

“We estimate that the amount needed to address the urgent and ongoing needs of the flooded areas will far exceed the ability of our state and local governments to pay for such damages,” the delegation wrote. “Montana families and small businesses cannot afford a long government turnaround time.  They need help now.  We ask that you approve Governor Bullock’s request as soon as possible and provide local communities the resources they so desperately need.”
