FEMA Has Not Prioritized Compliance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, Hindering Its Ability to Reduce Repetitive Damages to Roads and Bridges [open pdf - 4MB]
From the Highlights: "The DMA 2000 [Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000] repealed and replaced prior mitigation planning provisions with new requirements, primarily to authorize a program for pre-disaster mitigation, streamline administration of disaster relief, and control the Federal costs of disaster assistance. We conducted this audit to determine to what extent FEMA is complying with the DMA 2000 by implementing regulations and policies to identify and reduce repetitive damages to our Nation's roads and bridges."
