Critical infrastructure

A bill (H.R. 143) introduced by Rep. Gene Green (D-TX) would allow the government to provide direct assistance to the private sector in an emergency. The measure would allow disaster aid to private companies that operate critical energy infrastructure, including refineries. Federal assistance could include recovery of equipment, access to water, power, or other raw materials, and transportation and housing for critical employees.
