A your top three priorities Are housing housing and housing. We Are going to stick with it until we Are done a Fema administrator David Paulison told reporters after a closed door meeting with Southeast Texas officials. Fema has been heavily criticized by local state and county officials As being too slow in its efforts to provide housing a particularly Mobile Homes a for Southeast Texas residents whose Homes and apartments were either destroyed or severely damaged after Ike roared ashore near Galveston on sept. 13.
