President Joe Biden traveled to Fort Myers on Wednesday and got a briefing from Gov. Ron DeSantis and Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Deanne Criswell on Hurricane Ian recovery efforts.
DeSantis said on Tuesday that he would discuss with state Emergency Management Director Kevin Guthrie possible areas for requesting more federal assistance from the Biden administration.
“If there is more FEMA can do, we’ll put that in,” DeSantis said during an appearance in Fort Myers.
DeSantis has already directed Guthrie to request an additional 30 days on a 30-day disaster declaration Biden signed last week. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Tuesday that Biden would tour the region.
Biden is scheduled to speak this afternoon at 3:15 p.m. and you can watch live below. Please note, these press conferences are delayed sometimes, but the conference will go LIVE.
