Frankly, am disappointed H.R.1665 passed in the house. While the bill proposes something that sounds beneficial, it is, in reality, an awful idea. The formula the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) uses is designed to accommodate to cities with higher populations, so that more relief can go to more people per acre. However, with this new bill, a new idea is introduced in which population is not taken into account, or not held at the same value. This means one city with 200 citizens would get the same amount of relief as an actual grieving city with 10,000 citizens. This isn't necessary! Furthermore, the FEMA is a federal system (It even has Federal in the name) and is not responsible for rural state cities. They offer immediate relief within the federal budget. Overall, the formula may not be perfect, but FEMA’s per capita formula for determining disaster awards fairly distributes more funding to areas with greater populations. It’s harsh on rural communities because they don't require as much as population-dense areas. I understand what is done is done, and that it did pass in the house, however hopefully it won't pass in the senate.
