The Senate approved its $28.9 billion hurricane recovery package on May 4, 2006, improving in many ways upon the companion measure that passed the full House, H.R. 4939, on March 16. Several aspects of the Senate bill are critical to ensure the needs of elderly, disabled and other extremely low income renters in the Gulf coast are met, and we request that these changes remain in any compromise that emerges from conference committee negotiations.
