(Neb)-Signing Of Disaster Bill Draws Nebraska Praise

By: John Axtell Posted at: 06/07/2019 02:00 PM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)- Nebraska leaders are praising President Trump for signing long-debated disaster relief bill that includes money for disasters dating back to the Puerto Rican hurricane. The bill has $19.1-billion dollars for this spring's flooding in Nebraska and other midwest states.

       Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement thanking Trump, Nebraska's congressional delegation, and all the members of Congress who approved the bill.

      Ricketts said the new relief will greatly aid Nebraskans, and especially farmers and ranchers, as the state continues to rebuild bigger and better than before from the most widespread natural disaster in state history.

       U-S Senator Ben Sasse released a similar statement, saying he was grateful the president signed the bill into law and calling it "great news for our state" - a big deal and important down payment as Nebraska and its residents keep working hard to recover.
