Bush interfering with Corps report

Senator: Bush interfering with report:
"WASHINGTON — State officials and U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., are complaining about what they call interference by the Bush administration into a technical report on protecting the New Orleans area from a Category 5 hurricane.

Landrieu secured $8 million for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers report six months ago, but said she is disturbed that the document — due June 30 — was given to the federal Office of Management and Budget. She accused the administration of proceeding with cost-related policy changes to the report.
