It's still happening

Just this morning we were talking about how what's happening to Sandy victims has been happening to Katrina victims for a long time.

It's still happening.
Members of the New Orleans legislative delegation, including state Sens. Ed Murray, Karen Carter Peterson and J.P. Morrell and Rep. Jared Brossett, demanded to know why the state is asking for the money back when many homeowners claim they have sent in the necessary documentation to prove they followed the program’s rules and used the money to rebuild their storm-ravaged homes.

The meeting was only the latest show of outrage over a program that has been beset by controversy since its inception, criticized for not providing enough money to replace what was damaged and often leaving homeowners open to abuse by unscrupulous contractors.
