The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is presently within the Department of Homeland Security.  Under legislation introduced by Representatives Jared Moskowitz of Florida and Garret Graves of Louisiana, the agency would be elevated to a Cabinet-level department. 

Representative Moskowitz is a former head of the Florida Division of Emergency Management and understands the importance of eliminating bureaucratic red tape so that FEMA would be able to have a more rapid response to natural disasters. 

“As the first Emergency Management Director ever elected to Congress, I have seen firsthand the challenges faced when responding to emergencies, recovering from them, and mitigating their impacts,” he stated, adding, “There is no doubt that in the future FEMA will be busier than ever before and this move will help cut unnecessary red tape and make FEMA quicker.”
