PNJ Says FEMA Grant Will Save the Federal Goverment Money

In an op-ed published today, The PNJ praises the grant Escambia County recieved to prevent future hurricane damage.

FEMA is spending twenty-million dollars to install hurricane shutters, wind-resistant doors and hurricane straps on the roofs of 3000 homes.

The piece concludes that the spending will save the federal government money in the long run by preventing extensive hurricane damage that would be sustantially more expensive than the twenty-million dollars spent on the preventative measures.

This is a great point.
