Subject: FW: Letter from Judge Salinas - Hidalgo County

I attach Hidalgo County's letter dated March 14 to POTUS re: levee improvements; I am advised that an
identical letter was sent to Senators Cornyn and Hutchison, Rep's Ortiz, Cuellar, Hinojosa and Governor Perry.

This letter does not request a legislative fix related to the combined levee-border barrier project and does not
mention a deadline for such a fix. Instead, the County requests authorization for federal reimbursement of local
funds expended for flood protection improvements and appropriations of $125 million. I have asked Hidalgo
County staff to verify that they are not sending another letter to Congress related to the levee-border barrier
proposal; I will advise when I receive an answer to my inquiry.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
