"BATON ROUGE, La. -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency is ending a policy that restricted media access to its trailer parks.

U.S. Rep. Charlie Melancon, D-Napoleonville, who condemned FEMA's restrictive policy Monday, was cautiously optimistic Tuesday when he was told about the new policy by a reporter.
'When political pressure starts building, they immediately say they are going to change things and make them better,' Melancon said.
'I just hope they're being honest with you,' Melancon added. 'I think I'll have to see it first before I believe it.'"
