The Federal government's response to the Kansas tornadoes has been chillingly de ja vu Hurricane Katrina. Found an interesting blog post over at Daily Kos suggesting that a solution is to repeal the 1986 Montgomery Act (which stripped governor's of their powers to control their state National Guard units) Now I used to be a Jeffersonian states rights advocate until Hurricane Katrina. I personally happen to feel it's not an either/or but a both/all. Local, state, and federal leaders need to solidify in times of crisis. Katrina significantly overwhelmed every agency involved, so I don't see how handing control over to state officials is a solution. Nevertheless good thought leadership by the Kos blogger.
