[Letter from Senators Mary L. Landrieu, Susan Collins and Joseph Lieberman to President George W. Bush Regarding the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act]   [open pdf - 328KB]

"Thank you for signing into law H.R. 5441, the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, which makes important strides in strengthening and reforming the Federal Emergency Management Agency and its response to national disasters such as hurricanes Katrina and Rita and the catastrophic levee breaks of last year. We were dismayed, however, by the 'signing statement' in which you express your intention to disregard provisions in the law intended to protect against further mistakes such as those that plagued the 2005 hurricane response."
