	State of Nebraska, resulting from severe winter storms, 
	flooding, and tornadoes on April 10-23, 2001, is of 
	sufficient severity and magnitude to warrant a major

	(Stafford Act). I, therefore, declare that such a major 
	disaster exists in the State of Nebraska.

	designated areas, Hazard Mitigation throughout the State, 
	and any other forms of assistance under the Stafford Act

	that Federal assistance be supplemental, any Federal funds 
	provided under the Stafford Act for Public  Assistance  
	or  Hazard  Mitigation will be limited to 75 percent of 
	the total eligible costs.

	Further, you are authorized to make changes to this 
	declaration to the extent allowable under the Stafford Act.

Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the authority vested in 
the Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency under 
Executive Order 12148, I hereby appoint Carlos Mitchell of the
