Expanded Settlement Proposed over FEMA Trailers

An expanded class-action settlement agreement
calls for around two dozen companies that manufactured trailers distributed by the government after hurricanes Katrina and Rita to pay a total of $37.5 million.

The money is being sought to resolve claims by numerous Gulf Coast residents who say they were exposed to dangerous fumes while living in the trailers.

About $22.7 million of the total would be paid by four
manufacturers that agreed to participate in the expanded settlement proposal.

The filing in court this week doesn't disclose how much each company would individually pay.

    While, the next time something like Katrina hits put all their butts in tents like our troops are living in. Give them a bucket to use for a bathroom. Then those FEMA trailers will look real good. If Bush did nothing it was wrong. Get FEMA trailers in for them to live in it is wrong. Some times no matter what you do for a bunch of ingrates it is never enough.
