Illinois Senators ask for federal relief after winter storms

(KMOV) – Local government officials came together on Wednesday requesting that President Obama declare 74 Illinois counties federal disaster areas after being affected by severe storms in late January and early February.

United States senators Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk are part of the effort.

A presidential disaster declaration would allow cities and counties to apply for federal reimbursements to help pay for storm damage repairs.
