LITTLE ROCK — U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor says Polk County will receive $1.1 million in disaster-relief funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Pryor announced the funding Thursday and said it's to help the county recover from damage caused by winter storms in 2013. The funding is included in an omnibus appropriations bill.

FEMA said the funding will be provided to Rich Mountain Electric Cooperative in Mena to repair its damaged distribution center.

More money that we have to send to the Feds first and then beg for via weasel politicians when the states should be keeping their own money. Ban FEMA and create 50 State "EMA"'s!
