Senate Committee Chair Refuses Katrina Hearings

Why did the new chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee “back away from the committee’s Katrina probe?” Until now the White House has refused to hand over documents relating to their Katrina performance and contracts. This new Senate committee chair has refused to subpoena documents related to Katrina – and the contracting scandals – and is refusing to hold hearings on what happened and how to prevent it from happening again.
I call on Senate Majority Reid to remove this Senator from his chairmanship of this important committee.
Fortunately the House is likely to hold hearings on Katrina.
