From the opening statement of Mike Rogers: "This afternoon we begin a series of hearings to examine the use and misuse of Federal disaster assistance provided to New York after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Before we begin, I do want to thank our panel guests for being with us today, and we look forward to your statements and answers to questions. As we approach the fifth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, we remember how the world witnessed an extraordinary effort by New Yorkers to respond to an extraordinary event. To help the city recover, the President and Congress provided approximately $20 billion for New York City. The graphics on display reflect the breakdown of the $20 billion both by category and the amount disbursed by each Federal agency involved in this effort. But while New Yorkers and the Nation pulled together, there were those who took advantage of this crisis for illegal personal gain."
