Gov. Quinn to Appeal FEMA's Decision Rejecting Millions in Aid

FEMA has rejected a state petition for millions of dollars in assistance for a number of Illinois communities… to help with the expenses they incurred as a result of the deadly tornadoes that hit the state in November.


The state calculated more than $6 million in damages, but under formulas used by FEMA, the amount would have had to be nearly three times that much to qualify for federal aid. Governor Pat Quinn says FEMA’s formula punishes larger states like Illinois and vows to appeal.


Illinois’s two U.S. Senators say they support Quinn’s effort to overturn the decision.
