   CONWAY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon is asking the federal government to issue a major disaster declaration for 22 southern Missouri counties hit hard by this month's floods.

   Nixon said Tuesday the costs of emergency response and repairs will be high.

   The floods that resulted from nearly two weeks of heavy rain caused widespread damage across the southern tier and left at least three people dead.

   Nixon announced his request in Conway, where the waste water treatment system was heavily damaged.

   The governor is asking the federal government to clear the way for individual and public assistance in 14 counties, public assistance in four counties and individual assistance in four others.

   Individual assistance allows households to seek federal aid for uninsured losses. Public assistance allows local governments to seek help with response and recovery expenses.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's final tab has come in from a disastrous 2011 that included the Joplin tornado and widespread flooding. The costs are a lot less than what Gov. Jay Nixon originally anticipated.

Figures provided to The Associated Press by Nixon's budget office show that the state's share for the disasters is a little over $36 million.

That's merely a quarter of the $150 million that Nixon set aside for disaster aid in 2011.

Nixon's budget director, Linda Luebbering, says there was no dollar-for-dollar tracking of how the rest of the money was used. She says it simply got rolled into the general revenue pool for government operations and services.

Legislative budget leaders say Nixon's $150 million set-aside was an unnecessary budget manipulation.
