    I have determined that the damage in certain areas 
    of the State of Montana, resulting from severe winter 
    storms on June 3-14, 2001, is of sufficient severity 
    and magnitude to warrant a major disaster declaration 
    under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and 
    Emergency Assistance Act, 42 USC 5121 (Stafford Act). 
    I, therefore, declare that such a major disaster 
    exists in the State of Montana.

    In order to provide Federal assistance, you are 
    hereby authorized to allocate from funds available 
    for these purposes, such amounts as you find necessary

    You are authorized to provide Public Assistance in 
    the designated areas, Hazard Mitigation throughout 
    the State, 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 Michael Bolch of the Federal 
Emergency Management Agency to act as the Federal Coordinating

I do hereby determine the following areas of the State of Montana 
to have been affected adversely by this declared major disaster:
