U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) issued the following statement in response to the Obama Administration's rejection of a Texas Wild Fire Declaration:

“It is unimaginable to me that the President would deny this application when so many Texas counties have been affected by devastating fires.

A few counties in our area have already been individually approved for federal fire assistance, but we’re not giving up.  We are going to keep fighting to get people the help they need to recover and rebuild.”
