Madison – “Thank you to Governor Doyle and the State Legislators, including Senators Miller, Risser and Erpenbach and Representatives Hebl, Parisi, Pocan, Pope-Roberts, Black, Berceau, Travis, Hahn and Ward, who worked so hard to pass this bill. This funding is especially important because FEMA denied our state’s request for assistance for our county and others. In addition to the damage costs to private citizens, local governments have incurred more than $2.5 million in costs for cleanup and relief efforts, including nearly a half million alone in costs for Dane County government. This fund will help municipalities offset property tax increases and cuts to services that might be needed otherwise. This is a good example of Wisconsin communities working together to help each other out during difficult times.”
