Assemblyman Brindisi Statement on Lack of FEMA Funding

December 6, 2017

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi of Utica today issued the following statement reacting to the decision by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to deny New York State’s request for major disaster assistance, following severe flooding that hit the Mohawk Valley and other areas of the state on July 1st of this year:

“It is simply incomprehensible to me that FEMA has concluded that local residents and municipalities in the Mohawk Valley and other parts of the state do not need additional resources following the devastating flooding that hit our area last July. Over the last five months, I have heard from many residents who still have not recovered from this storm. I am strongly urging the members of New York’s Congressional Delegation to contact FEMA administrators and demand a second look at this application.”--Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi
