This is the December 4, 2012 hearing on "Review of the Preparedness, Response to, and Recovery from Hurricane Sandy" held before the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. From the opening statement of John L. Mica: "I am pleased that we have come together here as a committee to review the progress from Hurricane Sandy, recovery progress. But this hearing actually goes beyond the most recent hurricane and storm. We have attempted as a committee to make some reforms and also deal with some of the problems we have had from past storms and natural disasters. And the House, prior to this most recent storm, passed H.R. 2903, which was the FEMA Reauthorization Act. That was passed on September 19th, before the storm began. And it was passed specifically to deal with some of the problems we have had with previous natural disasters and also the ability of FEMA, our emergency management organization at the Federal level, to deal with some of those issues." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Craig Fugate, Michael Walsh, Frederick Tombar, Robert Latham, Kevin Davis and David Popoff.
