Ogle, Bureau in federal aid request

CHICAGO (AP) – The Illinois congressional delegation is asking President Barack Obama to make federal aid available to local governments in 25 counties impacted by floods earlier this month.

The delegation sent a letter to Obama Thursday saying that the state has found about $40 million in damage in those counties.

The federal government has already authorized assistance for families and businesses. The funds being requested by lawmakers would help state and local governments.

The counties listed in the letter are: Adams, Bureau, Clark, Cook, Crawford, DuPage, Fulton, Grundy, Henderson, Kendall, Knox, Lake, LaSalle, Livingston, Marshall, Mason, McHenry, Mercer, Ogle, Pike, Putnam, Rock Island, Stark, Warren and Woodford.
