Former FEMA Director, David Paulison, urges more of Sandy money be spent on pre-disaster mitigation: Let’s use these unspent federal dollars to prepare for disasters.
It seems to me that we have heard these arguments before –they preceded the successful Project Impact under the Witt Administration at FEMA when Clinton was president. But President GW Bush killed the program soon after his election.
It’s deja vue all over again! Please see the comments from some experienced hands in this line of work.
