Mr. White goes to Washington

Houston Mayor Bill White and Galveston Mayor Lyda Ann Thomas are in Washington, D.C., this Tuesday, asking lawmakers for money to help with the cost of cleaning up after Hurricane Ike.

Mayor Thomas plans to ask Congress for $2.3 Billion. That money is needed she says to help repair the sewer and water system, the Port of Galveston and parts of the University of Texas Medical Branch.

Mayor White says he is optimistic that federal leaders will provide financial assistance to help the city of Houston rebuild.
