Boyda announces more disaster relief for Kansas farmers

2007 was a hard year for a lot of people in Kansas, particularly in the Second Congressional districts. Late snow, the Greensburg tornado and May flooding, and then more flooding later in the summer left our farmers looking at ruined crops and no idea as to what would come next.

Congresswoman Nancy Boyda's office, along with the offices of our two US Senators, worked hard to make sure as many Kansans as possible were covered by FEMA with disaster aid, and communities from Osawatomie to Burlingame thank them for their dedication to the people they were elected to serve.

Boyda also announced this week that even more assistance will be made available to her constituents.

Congresswoman Nancy Boyda (Kansas Second District) announced today that Kansas farmers and ranchers who suffered crop, feed, and livestock losses in federally declared disaster areas in 2007 may be eligible for new assistance from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

"A whole lot of folks suffered damage to their crops and livestock as a result of Kansas weather last year," Rep. Boyda said. "With this new disaster aid, Congress is extending a helping hand."
Congresswoman Boyda's hard work on our behalf has benefited us again and again this past year, and we'd positive the people of the district see and appreciate her efforts.

Thank you to the rest of the Kansas delegation for helping ensure every district of Kansas got the assistance that was so desperately needed.

Let's hope that 2008 is kindler and gentler to Kansas than '07 was. I think that we got hit with every possible natural disaster except for an earthquake.
