April 18 '07: The Federal Emergency Management Agency recently sent a letter to Congress saying that its revisions to the National Response Plan might not be able to hit the June 1 deadline, the Associated Press reported.
"The advisory said development of the new plan had been delayed by unexpected issues, and more time is needed to resolve them. No new target date was set," the AP reported. "In the meantime, a modified version of the plan in place during Katrina will be followed."Working groups have been meeting since last fall 2006 to formulate a new national plan after "the original plan was considered to have failed in a number of areas during the 2005 hurricane season. ... Along with FEMA, representatives of other interested federal, state, local and tribal authorities, private sector companies, and nongovernment agencies are working on the revisions."
