Henry Approves Aid to Oklahoma Farmers


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Brad Henry says federal aid has been

approved for farmers and ranchers in 72 Oklahoma counties who

suffered damage because of drought, extreme heat and high winds

over the past year.

Henry announced the aid package on Wednesday. It means farmers

and ranchers in the counties are eligible for low-interest loans to

cover their losses.

In a letter to the governor, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom

Vilsack says loss assessments indicated there was enough damage to

merit a primary disaster declaration in 58 counties. Under federal

regulations, another 14 contiguous counties also qualify.

Last month, Gov. Henry requested an agricultural disaster

declaration for all 77 Oklahoma counties. The only counties that

will not receive federal aid are Craig, Kay, Nowata, Ottawa and

Washington counties.
