Atlanta, GA - Today, governors from ten states - Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska, South Carolina, and Wisconsin - issued a joint, bipartisan letter to President Trump and Congressional leaders urging support of disaster relief aid to millions of affected Americans.

"I thank the governors who signed this letter for their strong support of Georgia farmers and their commitment to fellow Americans in need," said Governor Brian P. Kemp. "It is now or never for many Georgia families who experienced the generational devastation of Hurricane Michael. I am encouraged by recent negotiations in Washington, but let me be clear: further delay of relief to the people of Georgia will result in families going bankrupt, farms will go under, and hardworking Americans will suffer. I pray that our nation's leaders will finally realize the dire situation good people in my state are facing. It is past time to put aside politics, stop the gridlock, and pass a bill."
