KTVQ: Baucus, Tester: Help is on the way for Montana flood victims

Montana’s U.S. Senators Max Baucus and Jon Tester today announced a major Presidential Disaster Declaration for the state of Montana, making federal resources available for county, local, and tribal governments and private nonprofit organizations that are responding to the recent flooding.

Both Senators have been pressing FEMA to process the disaster designation quickly and are working with federal agencies, including the U.S. Departments of Transportation and Agriculture, to aid Montana’s recovery.
