Legislature Considers FEMA Trailer Issue

Posted: Updated:

State legislators are considering an amendment to establish a housing authority that would help people living in FEMA trailers find permanent housing.

Minot State Senator Karen Krebsbach says the amendment would send an extra one-and-a-half million dollars to the adjutant general.

He would be charged with working out a plan to help the 200-or-so families still living in FEMA temporary housing units.

The deadline for people to be out of FEMA housing is late June.

Krebsbach says people still living in the trailers provided by FEMA have no other options and desperately need help before that deadline.

(Sen. Karen Krebsbach, -R- Minot) "I've had conversations with some who've said my home is destroyed, I don't know what I'm going to do. They're just up against it. We need to do something to transition these people to other living quarters and this probably can be an answer that can help a lot of people out."

The amendment was heard by members of the Senate Appropriations Committee today.

No action has been taken.
