Today, the Obama Administration rejected Governor Scott’s request for an Emergency Declaration under the Stafford Act following last week’s terror attack at Pulse Nightclub.  By denying this request, the federal government will not provide the $5 million in federal funds requested by Governor Scott to help with emergency response efforts, law enforcement response, emergency medical care, counseling services and other social services to assist victims.  The federal government, however, will allocate $253,000 to help pay for overtime for first responders.
