Oregon Senators Asking For Disaster Aid

WASHINGTON, D.C. — After facing a year of historic wildfires, Oregon senators are asking President Obama to add our state to a disaster relief package that includes those affected by Superstorm Sandy.

Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden are hoping to have Oregon farmers and ranchers put on a disaster aid package that is expected to move through Congress this month.

They say, although months have passed since the wildfires this summer, the impacts of lost crops, livestock and homes are still being felt.
