Mitt Romney backs giving FEMA the “funding it needs,” according to a statement provided by his campaign to CBS News Wednesday. 

“I believe that FEMA plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters,” Romney said in the statement. “As president, I will ensure FEMA has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission, while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need, because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individuals and communities affected by natural disasters.”
