New CRS report surveys post-Katrina statutory changes

Filed under: Preparedness and Response — by Christian Beckner on November 21, 2006

A new report from the Congressional Research Service surveys legislation that has been enacted to reform FEMA and the broader preparedness and response system in the wake of Hurricane Katrina:

RL33729: Federal Emergency Management Policy Changes After Hurricane Katrina: A Summary of Statutory Provisions, November 15, 2006

The majority of the report is focused on summarizing Title VI of P.L. 109-295, post-Katrina reform legislation that was tacked onto the FY 2007 DHS approiations bill (H.R. 5441).

The full HLS Watch collection of CRS reports is available here.
