WASHINGTON — Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., chairwoman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, on Thursday announced $8.3 million for the West Virginia Division of Highways through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Public Assistance program. Funding will go toward repairing roads in Marshall and Tyler counties that were damaged as a result of flooding in February 2018.

As chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Committee, I will continue to work to ensure West Virginia communities and communities across America have the resources they need to recover from natural disasters.”
