Now how is Louisiana supposed to pay the FEMA bill

Absurd. The economy is in a sling, and they're asking us to pony up. Does the fire department send a bill when they come to put out a fire in your house?

Louisiana's first bills from FEMA for its share of federal hurricane recovery efforts arrived over the holidays, and they were a doozy: $155.7 million, with a 30-day due date before interest starts accruing.

And more bills are expected to arrive in the coming months as federal officials tally their costs after hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
