Brewer applies for H1N1 Grant Funds

Governor Brewer today submitted an application to the Federal
Government for $7 million in grant funds with the goal of being better
prepared for flu season this year. The Swine Flu news has died down
compared to its height, but it is still considered a major problem
likely to pop up again in force soon. The application appears to be
in conjunction with indian tribes throughout the state.

While not on par with a Katrina like disaster since it's a worldwide
issue, not being prepared when flu season kicks off could be a big no
no so it's good the office is taking steps.
