Disaster Recovery Reform Act Introduced

This week, the Disaster Recovery Reform Act (H.R. 4460) was introduced in the House of Representatives. This bipartisan legislation seeks to help American communities rebuild and recover while providing them with the resources they need to prevent future destruction. The bill's introduction by Emergency Management Subcommittee Chairman Lou Barletta (R-PA) and Ranking Member Hank Johnson (D-GA) follows a devastating string of hurricanes and wildfires that cost over 260 American lives and caused more than $300 billion in damages. The legislation is supported by the BuildStrong Coalition, a group of firefighters, emergency responders, insurers, engineers, architects, contractors and manufacturers, as well as consumer organizations, code specialists, and many others committed to building a more resilient America.
