Description: A bipartisan group of U.S. House members today wrote President Obama in support of Governor Cuomo's request for a major disaster declaration following severe flooding in 26 upstate New York counties. The flooding, which began on April 26, badly damaged homes and businesses. Over $38 million in infrastructure damage and debris removal costs have been identified, providing additional burdens to cash-strapped local and state governments. The letter was authored signed by Reps. Maurice Hinchey (NY-22), Chris Gibson (NY-20), Richard Hanna (NY-24), Bill Owens (NY-23), Tom Reed (NY-29), Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25) and Louise Slaughter (NY-28).
