A Big Step Backward in FL?

From USAtoday: As Hurricane Andrew memories fade, Florida weakens building codesFormer FEMA Administrator, a FL resident, admonishes the state on that bad move.

But in an article in the Tampa Bay newspaper, there is pushback on Fugate’s argument. I guess the full story has not yet emerged.

Update: See the blunt comments on this issue from Eric Holdeman, a fellow blogger and former local emergency manager.

  1. I blogged on this one.

    Interesting to see how things ebb and flow.

    We need more disasters to keep people’s attention to the issue.
