Florida Governor Ron DeSantis requested a 100% reimbursement from the federal government for the damage caused by Hurricane Michael, and he got it.

According to an elated DeSantis, thanked the president for his "historic"  and "unwavering comitment to the people of Northwest Florida?"

"Today, President Donald J. Trump made additional disaster assistance available to the State of Florida by authorizing an increase in the level of Federal funding for debris removal and emergency protective measures undertaken in the State of Florida as a result of Hurricane Michael.

On October 14, 2018, President Trump authorized a 100 percent Federal cost share for debris removal and emergency protective measures, including direct Federal assistance, for a period of five days of the State of Florida’s choosing.

Under the President's order today, Federal funds for debris removal and emergency protective measures are authorized at 100 percent of the total eligible costs for a period of 45 days from Hurricane Michael’s landfall."-The White House
