FEMA has More Money than Thought

The Federal Emergency Management Agency now estimates that it has $114 million left in its disaster relief account -- enough to last until Thursday or Friday.

That means the agency may not need any additional money to
function until the new fiscal year begins on Saturday.

It takes some pressure off House and Senate leaders who've been
unable to reach a compromise on a bill providing disaster relief
and financing the government until mid-November. Republicans want
to pay for any additional disaster relief money through cuts in
other programs.
