    How hard would it be to attach a rider to a bill like the $50 billion sent to New York and New Jersey that would set up a fund to plan for the next disaster to hit? $10 a year attached to every property tax bill in the areas affected by the storm to start planning for the future. Answer: not hard at all...hence, it will never happen because no one could score political points with such a plan.

    While we at it, lets have an accounting of the private charities who claim to be so much better than the government. I don’t recall ever seeing a disaster with so few helpers from the private sector. Sort of points out the attitude of many that they only help when they want to, not necessarily just because someone is in need.

    It's easier than being responsible for your own bills.

    Why don't you call the Utah State Governor.
    I'm sure he already knows.

    Utah recieved the same sort of Federal Aid money for natural disasters during the wind storms last winter.

    But - I suspect you;
    1. Already knew the answer.
    2. Didn't both to Google the Answer.
    3. Were really just merely writing in to try to score a childish political point.
