Iowa lawmakers join the call for crop disaster relief

Posted:
DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) -

Senator Tom Harkin is joining the call for federal crop disaster relief for western Iowa in the wake of Missouri River flooding.

Harkin has made the request in a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

Governor Terry Branstad also asked Vilsack for the disaster designation last week.

A Secretarial Disaster Designation would help producers recover from loss of crops and damage to farmland, livestock facilities and buildings.
