Between February 2019 and December 2020, the state of Tennessee spentwell over” $ 175 million in managing response and recovery activities for large events without seeking federal assistance, Lee wrote.

These extraordinary state and local expenditures have reduced our capacity to recover from this current event,” 李说. “Given these factors, the severity and magnitude of the current situation is such that effective response is beyond the capabilities of the State and affected local governments.

In a follow-up letter addressed to Trump on Saturday, Tennessee Sens. Marsha Blackburn and Lamar Alexander reiterated Lee’s call for federal disaster relief, noting that thesite of the explosion remains an active crime scene.

The disaster is placing a significant financial burden on the state, local governments, and impacted individuals,” 他们说.

Tennessee Emergency Management Agency officials have been working to coordinate that state’s response to the disaster with Metro Nashville Police, Tennessee Highway Patrol, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

We are grateful for their efforts to respond to our communities’ needs. First responders and law enforcement officials have been working nonstop over the holiday on this investigation and we appreciate their bravery,” the senators wrote.
