LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts joined a bipartisan group of 10 Governors calling on Congress to finalize a supplemental disaster relief proposal.

 

“We appreciate that preliminary disaster packages have advanced in both chambers,” wrote the Governors in their letter.  “These are indeed encouraging signs, but after months of debate and continuing significant events driving widespread unmet needs for these states and communities even higher, now is the time to bring these efforts together in a final form and to bring national resources to bear where needed.”
