for the State of Louisiana, (FEMA-1357-DR), dated January 12,

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 13, 2001

Recovery Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  The notice is hereby given that,
in a letter dated March 13, 2001, the President amended the 
cost-sharing arrangements concerning Federal funds provided 
under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief 
and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 USC 5121, as amended by the
Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, Pub. L. No. 106-390, 114 
Stat. 1552 (2000), in a letter to Joe M. Allbaugh, Director
of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as follows:

	I have determined that the damage in certain 
	areas of the State of Louisiana resulting from 
	a severe winter ice storm beginning on December 
	11, 2000, and continuing through January 3, 
	2001, is of sufficient severity and magnitude 
	that the provision of additional Federal 
	assistance to ensure public health and safety 
	is warranted under the Robert T. Stafford 
	Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act,
	42 USC 5121 (Stafford Act).

	Therefore, I amend the major disaster declaration
	of January 12, 2001, to provide that the Federal
	Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) may reimburse
	100 percent of the costs of debris removal 
	through March 13, 2001. This adjustment of the
	cost share may be provided to all counties under 
	the major disaster declaration. You may extend 
	this assistance for an additional period of time,
	if requested and warranted.

	Please notify the Governor of Louisiana and the 
	Federal Coordinating Officer of this amendment
	to my major disaster declaration.
