"The strong support of Senator Mark Warner, Senator Jim Webb, Congressman Eric Cantor and Virginia's entire congressional delegation was appreciated and aided in ultimately securing disaster recovery assistance from FEMA. "

FEMA would have been very disappointed if nobody gave them a call.

It amazes me everytime i see Gov. McDonnell praising himself and Cantor for the disaster relief louisa received. When it's been nationally reported that Cantor the day after him and McDonnell visted Louisa to see the earthquake damage. Was using the FEMA relief money as a budget war for Congress. Luckily what happened FEMA ended up having enough money left in the remaining budget already that they could provide more assistance to the people in the US who had losts homes due to hurricanes, floods earthquakes.
After it wasn't a budget battle then it was busy ensuring the state gets the relief money
