Washington, D.C. Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-05) offered the following statement regarding Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers’ request for a Major Disaster Declaration for southeastern Wisconsin, following the severe storms and flooding that occurred in January 2020. Congressman Sensenbrenner joined his colleagues from the Wisconsin delegation in sending the following letter to President Donald Trump:

“Today, I joined my congressional delegation colleagues in requesting that the White House approve Governor Evers’ request for a Major Disaster Declaration in Wisconsin. This declaration would bring much needed federal assistance to the southeastern part of our great state. I hope that this request will be reviewed and considered promptly, and that FEMA will continue to work with the state and local governments to facilitate the recovery and rebuilding necessary.”
