house Bill H.R. 1678

To amend the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act concerning the statute of limitations for actions to recover disaster or emergency assistance payments, and for other purposes.

    Without more information regarding what is in this bill, I vote no. This Congress is enacting legislation at a break-neck speed, most of it NOT in the interest of the average citizen.

    There is not enough detail to understand exactly what this bill does other than prolong the period by which local communities can have to spend down FEMA funds. In my opinion, the current system works fine and should be left alone.

    If this bill extends the timeframe in which to claim disaster relief, then it's a good thing. It can take time - a surprising amount of time - after a catastrophe for people to recover physically and emotionally and to gather everything they need in order to make any claim for anything, and to see whether any private insurance they may have had is going to deny them coverage.

    Does this increase the time in which actions can be taken or decrease it? If it increases it, it should move forward because putting a stricter timeline on disaster relief could mean that, in the event of a disaster like the tsunami from the mid 2000s that requires A LOT of relief work, people could potentially go without aid. If it shortens the time, it should be rejected.

    There is not enough available information. Slow down and focus on things like international incidents.... Has the president even selected a leader for FEMA yet?

    There is not nearly enough information here to make an informed decision, and it feels like congress in general is pushing through legislation without proper consideration.
