Gov. Rick Perry assailed the Federal Emergency Management Agency's planning, information and reimbursement methods in a letter to the Homeland Security secretary, writing that the agency's inefficiency had endangered the welfare of Texas and hurricane victims who sought refuge there.
Perry's letter to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff marked only one aspect of a large-scale assault Tuesday by Texas officials against FEMA. Houston Mayor Bill White complained about the federal hurricane response to lawmakers in Washington, and Texas apartment representatives released a survey blaming FEMA for the possible eviction of 15,000 refugees.
It must be that Rick Perry is incompetant, and he doesn't ask for what he needs in the right way, or at the right time. -sarcasm off-
