I spoke to the White House late this afternoon and they informed me that President Trump has reviewed the state's request for disaster assistance for the damage incurred by tropical storm Isaias, predominantly impacting Long Island. The total amount of FEMA funding will be $35 million. The funding will allow the state and local governments to respond to the need and storm recovery. I'm grateful for the Federal assistance and the speedy resolution. On a personal level it's good to hear from the White House that the President was continuing to work today. We once again wish him and the first lady a speedy recovery and our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.
