  Rep. Gosar Sends Letter to FEMA Administrator in Support of Yarnell Hill Fire Disaster Designation Appeal
Entire Arizona Delegation Signs onto Gosar Letter    

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) signed a letter to Administrator Fugate in support of Gov. Brewer’s appeal of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) decision to reject Arizona’s request to designate the Yarnell Hill Fire as a major disaster, which would provide relief to its victims. The entire Arizona delegation signed the letter led by Rep. Gosar, asking the Administration to ‘expeditiously’ reconsider their denial to classify the Yarnell Hill Fire a major disaster.
