The White House released a readout of President Biden’s call with a bipartisan group of governors affected by severe winter weather this week, including Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear, Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, and Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt.
According to the White House, Biden “reiterated to all the governors that his Administration is prepared to assist and stands ready to respond to requests for Federal assistance from the governors and will deploy any additional Federal emergency resources available to assist the residents of their states in getting through this historic storm.”
