SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  Notice is hereby given that,
in a letter dated January 18, 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 U.S.C.
51521 et seq.), in a letter to James L. Witt, Director 
of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as follows:

	I have determined that the damage in certain 
	areas of the State of Texas resulting from a 
	severe winter ice storm beginning on December 
	12, 2000, and continuing through January 15, 
	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, et seq., as amended by the Disaster 
	Mitigation Act of 2000, Pub. L. No. 106-390, 
	114 Stat. 1552 (2000)(Stafford Act).

	Therefore, I amend my declaration of January 8, 
	2001, to provide that the Federal Emergency 
	Management Agency (FEMA) may reimburse 90 percent 
	of the costs of debris removal from January 8, 
	2001, through and including March 9, 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 Texas and the 
	Federal Coordinating Officer of this amendment 
	to my major disaster declaration.
