of the qualified Hurricane Ike disaster area bond program and naming priorities
for the designation of such bonds. Texas received more than $1.8 billion in tax-exempt bond authority for disaster relief.
On February 17, 2012 Governor Perry issued a proclamation allowing all issuers in the 34 affected counties to apply for all remaining Hurricane Ike bonding authority. As of April 30, 2012, local issuers have closed on more than $1.01 billion of Hurricane Ike Bonds.
