Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) gave a one minute floor speech in the House of Represntatives on the recent flooding in Illinois. In the comments she mentioned Amanda Franklin of London Mills who "lost her home, many of her possessions, and her children’s drawings that she had saved since they were in kindergarten." She also menitoned "Bethene Weber, who is 78 years old, lost her home of almost half a century to the floods."

Bustons went on to recognize first responders and made an appeal to help victims of natural disasters wherever they may occur, "But, Mr. Speaker, this type of disaster could happen anywhere. As we continue to debate the issues of the day in this body, I call on all of us to keep in mind the people who have been hit hard by natural disasters.We owe it to them to be there in their time of need."
