"FEMA Trailer Safety Debated by Congress as Public Sale Continues"

"The title of Wednesday's hearing before the House Energy Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade and Consumer Protection was, 'The Public Sales of Hurricane Katrina/Rita FEMA  Trailers: Are they Safe or Environmental Time Bombs?'

The bipartisan consensus on the committee seemed to be leaning heavily toward 'environmental time bombs,' but now that the General Services Administration has completed the sale of more than 100,000 of the trailers, it is not clear what Congress can do about it."
