U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar received a letter from U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer that designates some counties in the 28th District as natural disaster areas and contiguous disaster areas. This designation makes farm operators in these counties eligible for Farm Service Agency (FSA) emergency loans and the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program (SURE.) Eligible counties include Atascosa, La Salle, McMullen, Frio and Bexar.
