STATEMENT BY GOVERNOR HALEY BARBOUR
Regarding FEMA’s Announcement to pay 100% of the Debris Removal from the Mississippi Sound
"This is very good news and I appreciate the Bush Administration for taking this extremely helpful position as Mississippi rebuilds. I share the Coast Guard's optimism that the job can be finished in a year and look forward to a time in the not so distant future when all the debris, dangers and hazards are removed from the Sound."
