Gov. Sisolak Asks For Major Disaster Declaration From President Trump

Governor Steve Sisolak has asked for a Major Disaster Declaration for the state of Nevada from President Donald Trump.

The declaration would bring more federal assistance to the state and give access to a number of federal programs to help with everything from unemployment to crisis counseling and mass care.

There is no word on when the president will act on the request.

Gov. Sisolak declared a state of emergency March 12, which is the first step to getting a declaration from the federal government.

The governor extended the stay-at-home declaration for the state through April 30.
