Federal Disaster Policies After Terrorists Strike: Issues and Options
This book collects and examines information on federal policies that would be implemented in the event that terrorist attacks occur again. It then asks about each of these policies: Based on experiences gained thus far, should Congress consider changes in federal consequence management policies to address the effects of possible future attacks? The book explores two types of issues-selected administrative issues pertinent to delivery of assistance, and selected policy issues about the assistance provided. The 12 section in the book follow a common format: an issue statement, background information, and analysis (including information specific to terrorist attacks) and policy options.
