Skillman Expecting More Drought Disaster Declarations
Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman says 50 counties have been declared primary disaster areas, and more declarations will likely come later this week.
Kosciusko County is included in the list.
Despite the conditions, she doesn’t expect Governor Mitch Daniels to enact statewide water usage restrictions.
Skillman, who also serves as the state’s secretary of agriculture, pointed out 17 percent of the state’s jobs are agriculture-related, which is why there is “great concern” throughout the state. Food prices are expected to continue increasing.
