November 13, 2008: Rep. Lewis's Response to Mayor Franklin's Request for Federal Aid

Rep. John Lewis made this comment earlier today related to news of the Atlanta city government’s financial problems:

"Mayor Franklin has delivered some very difficult news. There are tough times ahead for all of us who live in Atlanta. I am aware of her request for federal assistance. Right now, it is too early to determine what kind of federal support the city can receive. I am in the process of talking to the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Charlie Rangel, and other colleagues to determine how the federal government can help the city as we confront this crisis."
