Timely FEMA Funding

Resolution 11-11.09

Whereas, natural disasters occur in odd places, such as volcanic eruptions in Washington, earthquakes in Virginia, hurricanes in Vermont, floods in Arizona, and tsunamis in Oregon; and


Whereas, the severity of these occurrences cannot be foreseen; and


Whereas, the victims of tornados, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc. need immediate government assistance and not from funding which comes after extended deficit reduction negotiation,


Therefore be it resolved, that the California Democratic Party supports fully funding FEMA disaster relief and opposes holding up needed federal aid to disaster victims whose needs are immediate and can't wait for pending deficit reduction negotiations, and


Be it further resolved, that the California Democratic Party informs the California Democratic Congressional Delegation of this position.
