Iowa Insider: Culver lays out the welcome mat for Bush

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Insider

The day before President Bush is set to tour flood damage in Iowa,
Gov. Chet Culver said he wants the federal government to pick up the
entire tab for emergency response efforts and debris removal related
to the disaster. "As governor, I am committed to doing whatever it
takes to help rebuild our state," Culver said in a statement. "Over
the past three weeks, I have seen the strength and resilience of
Iowans firsthand. I know we can meet the challenges that this year's
severe weather has created, but we can't do it alone." Typically, the
costs of a natural disaster are shared among federal, state and local
governments, but Culver cited the magnitude of the flooding disaster
and its costs as a reason the federal government should pay a larger
share.
