This past Sunday Fugate addressed governors from across the country at the National Governors Association conference in Biloxi, MS, where he discussed how FEMA can best support the states and their citizens as we prepare for and respond to emergencies and disasters. While in Biloxi, Fugate met privately with Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue as well as Iowa Governor Chet Culver. After returning to Washington, Fugate met Monday with Governor John deJongh Jr. of the U.S. Virgin Islands and Tuesday with North Dakota Governor John Hoeven.

Since the ATF recently tried this tactic, and failed, I wonder what FEMA would do in a similar situation... and would the Governors... all bought and sold by the body politic would have the moral courage to fight the reduction of their states to a simple sub-federal authority?
