We should have stopped FEMA at the border.

State senators say they have no idea how to pay a $3.75 billion bill the Federal Emergency Management Agency is mailing Louisiana for its share of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita relief.

What's worse, Legislative Fiscal Officer Steve Theriot said, is that $2.8 billion is due in six months. If that's not paid in 90 days, a 60 percent late penalty will be imposed, and interest will start piling up.
Less than useless.
