OK - Henry Calls on Fellow Governors to Urge Greater Federal Drought Assistance.
Gov. Brad Henry has sent a letter to nine of his fellow governors asking them to join in his request that President George W. Bush push to reauthorize dormant crop disaster and livestock assistance programs. Henry sent a letter last week to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency asking that the programs be reactivated. Gov. Henry said drought and scorching temperatures had taken a heavy toll on much of the nation. http://www.channeloklahoma.com/news/9751621/detail.html
