U.S. Congressional Legislation: FEMA

A bill (H.R. 1174) introduced by Rep. James Oberstar (D-MN) would reestablish the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as an independent agency within the Executive Branch. (FEMA was placed under the Department of Homeland Security after the 9-11 attacks.) The bill would also restate FEMA’s mission to reduce the loss of life and property and protect the nation from all hazards both natural and man-made.
