53 US House members from California have joined to request $4.4 billion in federal aid to recover from October’s destructive wildfires.
It’s a rare bi-partisan call for action, following the deadliest fires in state history.
44 people died and 8,900 homes were destroyed.
The delegation sent its letter on Friday to leaders of the House Appropriations Committee.
This latest request is $3 billion than the $7.4 billion originally sought by Gov. Brown and California Democrats last month.
State Republicans had asked President Trump to provide aid without specifying an amount.
