Recently there has been a great deal of discussion regarding relief management on O-Nerd and other less reputable news sources. The gist of all of this debate was the proper organization for heading up the relief effort. Florida Governor Jeb Bush recently published a little bit regarding an entirely different look. Based on his success in managing the ‘…seven hurricanes and two tropical storms in the past 13 months…’ he asserts that Florida’s state-level disaster relief is an efficient and effective one. Certainly with the poor example set by the Louisiana State Government, Florida is a shining pillar of crisis management, even if they are lackluster in election management.On a related note, there has been a great deal of discussion concerning FEMA’s alleged inability to effectively handle anything greater than a bad thunderstorm. Perhaps we are pointing our fingers at the wrong agency. Perhaps we do not even need FEMA to handle these sort of things. It would certainly appear that Governor Bush believes that the responsibility lies at the state and local level.
