Doyle wants to make sure Wisconsin gets share of federal disaster aid
Gov. Jim Doyle wants to make sure Wisconsin gets its share of the new federal flood aid.
President Bush okayed an extra $2.7 billion in flood relief Monday, when he signed the bill which provides money for the war operations in Iraq and Afghanistan into 2009.
The new flood money will not go to the states, but to six federal agencies.
FEMA will get the most, around $900 million.
