This is the October 5, 2021 hearing on "Hurricane Ida and Beyond: Readiness, Recovery, and Resilience," held before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of Carolyn B. Maloney: "The committee is holding this hearing to address the serious and growing crisis posed by natural disaster and extreme weather events driven by climate change. Between August 29 and September 1, Hurricane Ida devastated the U.S. from the Louisiana coast to New Jersey, and my home state of New York. This deadly hurricane resulted in over 100 deaths, including 13 in New York City. [...] Today, I reintroduced the Federal Agency Climate Prep Act. This bill will ensure that communities have a say in how Federal agencies implement their climate action plans, which is crucially making sure our taxpayer dollars are put to work where they are most needed. Last week, I was proud to support the $28 billion for victims of Hurricane Ida that Congress approved, but I was disappointed that 175 of my Republican colleagues voted against this bill, including many members whose constituents are in dire need of the emergency funding approved by Democrats. I am hopeful that as extreme weather becomes more frequent and more deadly, we can agree on a bipartisan basis that impacted Americans deserve our help." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Deanne Criswell.
