Area Congresswoman Asking for President’s Help

Posted by wlpo on June 19, 2010

Congresswoman Debbie Halvorson is among a group of Illinois politicians reaching out to the president for help in Magnolia and Streator.

Halvorson and others signed a letter to support Governor Pat Quinn’s request for a federal disaster declaration for five Illinois counties including La Salle and Putnam.  Quinn’s already declared the counties state disaster areas.

Halvorson and the governor are seeking federal help with disaster unemployment, crisis counseling and small business administration disaster loans.
