"Criticism by GOP lawmakers of Louisiana's response to Hurricane Katrina may be aimed at denying the state the federal help it's asking for, Gov. Kathleen Blanco said Wednesday.
'My fear is that this is all aimed at not giving us the resources we need,' Blanco said after three hours of tough questioning by members of the House Select Committee on Hurricane Katrina.
Committee member Henry Bonilla, R-Texas, said many lawmakers are being told by their constituents that they don't want more federal aid to go to the Gulf region 'without accountability.'
'There is a lot of Katrina fatigue,' Bonilla said.
