Obama grants Palin request for disaster declaration

From KTUU:
President Obama has issued a disaster declaration for several parts of Alaska affected by spring flooding and ice jams, ordering federal aid to help in recovery efforts.

Federal funds will be available to affected residents in the Alaska Gateway, Kuspuk, Yukon Flats and the Yukon-Koyukuk regional education attendance areas.
Governor Sarah palin had requested the federal disaster declaration on May 25, well over two weeks ago.

  1. The only reason Obama did it is to "show" that he is supposedly thinking about Alaska.

    It should have happened a while ago. Kind of like when the States got hit by that massive storm after he was elected.
