Blanco wants 'recovery corps'

Mike Hasten Louisiana Gannett News Service

BATON ROUGE - Gov. Kathleen Blanco wants to establish a "Louisiana Recovery Corps" to help hurricane evacuees cut through the bureaucratic red tape in filing for federal and other types of assistance.

Allen, the federal official in charge of the federal government's operations for both hurricanes, said he had not studied Blanco's proposal, but since it was not directed solely at FEMA, he would consider it.
