Non-Partisan Congressional Research Report Finds LA Governor Took Necessary Steps.
The Congressional Research Service (CRS) issued a report Tuesday afternoon asserting that Louisiana governor Katherine Blanco took the necessary and timely steps needed to secure disaster relief from the federal government, RAW STORY has learned.
The report, which comes after a request by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) to review the law and legal accountability relating to Federal action in response to Hurricane Katrina, unequivocally concludes that she did.
Conyers said, "This report closes the book on the Bush Administration's attempts to evade accountability," Conyers said in a statement. "The Bush Administration was caught napping at a critical time."
My man Kerry adds re: Bush's admission to responsibility, ""The President has done the obvious, only after it was clear he couldn't get away with the inexcusable."
