Gov. Perry denied disaster declaration

Wednesday, May 4, 2011 - 6:20am

The White House has rejected Governor Rick Perry's request for a federal major disaster declaration for areas of Texas affected by the recent wildfires.

Perry stated that since November, 9,000 fires have destroyed over 400  homes.

The request came before tornadoes swept along the eastern half of the nation.

The declaration would have made the state eligible for help in responding to and recovering from the emergency.
