Governor Asking For Declaration Of Agriculture Disaster

Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger has asked the federal government to declare an agriculture disaster in California to speed relief to farmers and rancher who lost livestock and crops during last month´s heat wave.

The governor has been visiting farms to hear first hand reports about the heat´s impact. He urged federal officials to make low-interest loans and other disaster aid available, without waiting for final damage estimates.
