Gov. Riley reacts to FEMA decision

Tallassee, Ala. (WSFA) -- Governor Bob Riley is unhappy with FEMA's decision to not approve individual disaster assistance for local flood victims.  He's even more upset with the time FEMA's assessment teams spent in Montgomery

"The mayor and I went to New York City together, and he essentially said when FEMA sent their team down, they said after about 100 visits, we've seen enough," said Gov. Riley

Gov. Riley also said, "We could have taken them to see another 300, so I've got a real problem with that."

Governor Riley says he plans to call Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to ask for assistance in reversing FEMA's decision.
