On the face of it, I agree with what seems to be the intent. Read a bit of the actual bill using some basic deductive reasoning and you'll quickly realize that this is typical partisan, election cycle "don't tread on me" crap. The reason FEMA takes these actions is to mitigate having to come back and spend EVERYONE's tax dollars to repair again in the same place. They don't abuse it, they don't take it lightly, and they most certainly have an interest; if you accept federal tax dollars to recover, the agency has a responsibility to all taxpayers funding the recovery to ensure they take some minimal steps toward mitigating future damage. Don't like it? Then don't ask FEMA (thus, the rest of us) for help, or move somewhere you won't get flooded/burned over/crushed by earthquakes every 3-5 years and keep having to rebuild.
