Jindal Criticizes Obama's Isaac Disaster Declaration
Earlier today, all seemed unusually rosy for Gov. Bobby Jindal when it came to President Barack Obama. At a mid-afternoon press conference in New Orleans, the erstwhile Mitt Romney running mate hopeful said he and other leaders, including Mayor Mitch, spoke with Obama during a conference call. With Tropical Storm Isaacapproaching, he even came close to thanking the President for agreening to an emergency declaration for Louisiana. But after the President signed the declaration later in the day, Jindal was back to criticizing the President. The governor issued a statement criticizing Obama for only making a "partial" declrataion.
In a letter attached to the statement, Jindal says the feds should be sending Louisiana more money. He says the declaration does not provide reimbursements to the state and local governments for emergency actions. It only provides money for "direct federal assistance," Jindal writes.
"The State’s expenditures for emergency protective measures are already approximately $8,000,000 and exceed the State of Louisiana’s threshold when making a request for a major disaster declaration," he said.
He adds that the declaration should cover all of the 34 parishes that declared a state of emergency in advance of the storm. Currently, it opens up FEMA resources and coordination to 15 parishes, including Orleans.
The declaration allows FEMA resources to be mobilized to help Louisiana in the face of the storm, and opens the way for the agency to coordinate assistance.
An outspoken critic of the President's health care law, Jindal has spent much of the general presidential election cycle stumping for GOP presidential candidate Romney. As Isaac threatened Louisiana, the gov said politics should be left aside, and today he said he wouldn't be attending the Republican National Convention.
