ABSTRACT

Investigation into use of FEMA Trailers   [open pdf - 4MB]

The following document contains a letter, and supporting documents, sent from the office of Representative Bennie G. Thompson, Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, to Attorney General Eric H. Holder, the General Services Administration Administrator Martha N. Johnson, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator W. Craig Fugate. The letter calls for an investigation into press reports that trailers once used as temporary housing units during the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, and have since become contaminated with, among other toxins, formaldehyde are currently being used by workers involved with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill cleanup. This is in spite of Representative Thompson's prior efforts to ensure these units would not be used as housing if resold, and assurances from the aforementioned agencies that such a situation would not occur.
