	flooding on March 5-31, 2001, is of sufficient severity and 
	magnitude to warrant a major disaster declaration under the

	Mitigation in the designated areas and any other forms of 
	assistance under the Stafford Act you may deem appropriate.  
	Consistent with the requirement 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 Marianne Jackson of the Federal
