In this February 6, 2009, letter from House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson to the acting administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Thompson expresses his concern about the delay in expending disaster funds post Hurricane Katrina in Mississippi. He briefly reviews the status of federal funding for Mississippi, and asks for an explanation of why "less than 20% of available funds have been expended well over three years later."
