Rogers, Bright applaud FEMA reexamination

(WASHINGTON, DC) - Congressmen Mike Rogers and Bobby Bright announced that they will meet with FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate on Tuesday to discuss FEMA's denial of Individual Assistance in the River Region.  They also applauded FEMA's recent decision, at the request of the Governor's office, to reexamine flood-damaged homes and businesses in Autauga, Bullock, and Montgomery counties. 

"I look forward to a productive dialogue with Administrator Fugate as to why Montgomery and the River Region were denied individual assistance after these severe storms and flooding," Rogers said.  "It is a step in the right direction to see FEMA take a second look at the flood damage in the region, and am hopeful FEMA will ultimately reconsider its initial decision."

"I want to thank Administrator Fugate for quickly agreeing to meet with us to further discuss damage in the River Region," Bright said.  "It is incredibly important that our constituents know why they were denied individual assistance, and what factors could lead to the reversal of that decision.  I look forward to discussing the process in detail with Administrator Fugate.  In the meantime, I am pleased that FEMA has taken the initial step in the appeal process by reexamining flood-damaged homes in Autauga, Bullock, and Montgomery Counties."

This week, Congressmen Rogers and Bright met with Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange and have been in close contact with the Alabama Emergency Management Agency regarding its ongoing efforts to appeal FEMA's decision.  On Tuesday, Bright and Rogers sent a letter to FEMA requesting a meeting with Administrator Fugate.
