McCaskill on FEMA

Missouri senator Claire McCaskill is classifying the flooding in Holt and Atchison counties as natural disasters, and says she wants to get funding to the residents soon.

US senators have sent to the floor the authorization bill to fund "FEMA". McCaskill disagrees with many over what caused the flooding or levee destruction in south Missouri, but says she just wants the funding to get to Missourians.

McCaskill says she's pushing for FEMA funding authorization by the end of this week.
