Governor Scott Walker says homes and businesses in western Wisconsin did not have enough flood damage to qualify for FEMA’s general disaster relief. But Walker has still asked President Donald Trump for money to fix public amenities like roads and bridges in eleven counties where up to seven and a half inches of rain caused mudslides, evacuations by boat, and ten-million dollars of damage to public infrastructure July 19th through 23rd. Walker wants public FEMA assistance for Buffalo, Crawford, Grant, Iowa, Jackson, La Crosse, Lafayette, Monroe, Richland, Trempealeau, and Vernon counties. If approved, the feds would pay 75-percent of repair costs, with state and local governments to cover the rest. The Small Business Administration recently approved low interest loans for far southeast Wisconsin where up to eight inches of rain caused record floods on the Fox River at Burlington and New Munster.
