Klobuchar is leading Minnesota Congressional delegation in securing federal assistance to help impacted farmers

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) held a virtual roundtable with local officials from across the state to discuss efforts to support communities as they recover from severe storms, wind, and flooding.

“We’ve seen the devastating impact of these storms and flooding in homes, businesses, and on our roads,” said Klobuchar. “I am working across party lines to secure federal disaster relief funding to help communities across our state get the assistance they need.” 

In response to recent storm damage and the historically cold, wet spring weather impacting areas across the state, Klobuchar is leading the Minnesota Congressional delegation in securing United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) assistance for Minnesota farmers and communities. 

Klobuchar was joined by Terri Collins, Mayor of Benson; Ron Staples, Stevens County Commissioner and Board Chair; Barb Becker, Todd County Commissioner;  Joan Lee, Polk County Commissioner; and Wade Pavleck, Koochiching County Commissioner.
