Resolution on Timely FEMA Funding
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,
Therefor be it resolved, that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party fully supports 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 Los Angeles County Democratic Party informs the California Democratic Congressional Delegation of this position.
