AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Gov. Rick Perry has requested a
presidential disaster declaration for 13 Texas counties that had
extensive flood damage from Tropical Storm Hermine.

Perry said Tuesday he made the request in a letter to President
Barack Obama, seeking federal assistance with recovery efforts.
Perry is requesting assistance for Bell, Blanco, Cameron,

Coryell, Denton, Hill, Jim Wells, Johnson, Medina, Tarrant, Travis,
Willacy and Williamson counties.

Perry also renewed his Sept. 9 state disaster proclamation for
those 13 counties.

After Tropical Storm Hermine made landfall earlier this month,
the remnants of the storm moved north, bringing flooding, high
winds and tornadoes.

I thought Perry did not need or want help from the Feds.,......What a hypocrite

Simply getting back some of the money Texas gives the feds. Unlike the socialist states of New York and California, Texas gets back less than it pays in. Perry won't take money from feds when strings are attached.
