TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida will be getting more federal funding for its cleanup efforts from Hurricane Wilma in 2005.

President Bush on Friday ordered disaster assistance to state and local governments to increase from 75 percent to 90 percent of eligible costs for public assistance projects such as debris removal.

The order is retroactive to the date of the president's major disaster declaration for Florida, issued Oct. 24, 2005.

Messages left Saturday for spokeswomen for the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist were not immediately returned.

Wilma caused an estimated $6.1 billion in insured losses and was blamed for 35 deaths in Florida. More than 6 million people lost power in the state.
