WTTG-TV - A U.S. House of Representatives committee is issuing a sharply critical report on the evacuation of thousands of New Orleans residents after the levees broke during Hurricane Katrina. A draft of the report, to be issued Wednesday by an 11-member, all-Republican committee, says the Bush administration was informed on the day Hurricane Katrina hit that the levees had been breached, even though the president and other top administration officials said earlier they had learned of the breach the next day. Michael Greenberger, JD, director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security and a professor in the School of Law, was interviewed about the report.

The Daily Record – A man on death row for killing his girlfriend’s 8-year-old daughter should get a new sentencing hearing because of errors at his trial, Maryland’s highest court has ruled. The four Court of Appeals judges who voted to overturn his death sentence disagree on why the man should receive a new hearing. "Whenever you have an opinion with various individual rulings, it speaks to how divided a court is about that particular issue, so the death penalty in Maryland is an issue which has divided our highest court," said Douglas Colbert, JD, professor at the School of Law.

WTOP Radio 1500 AM - A U.S. House of Representatives committee plans to issue a sharply critical report on Wednesday that says the Bush administration delayed the evacuation of thousands of New Orleans residents by failing to act quickly on early reports that the levees had broken during Hurricane Katrina. A draft of the report, to be issued by an 11-member, all-Republican committee, says the Bush administration was informed on the day Hurricane Katrina hit that the levees had been breached, even though the president and other top administration officials said earlier they had learned of the breach the next day. Michael Greenberger, JD, director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security and a professor in the School of Law, was interviewed about the report.

The New York Times – After mounting complaints that politics was skewing the way homeland security funds are apportioned, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced a change in the way funds will be distributed through the Urban Area Security Initiative. While generally praising the program, Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security, says he is concerned the application process "is overwhelming and highly bureaucratic," so much so that the "policy could fail under the weight of its own underpinnings."
