Taylor says no federal funding for coastal buyouts

Posted on Tue, Oct. 09, 2007

Rep. Gene Taylor today issued a statement today that the federal government would not be buying out property, responding to the hubbub surrounding a proposed Army Corps of Engineers program.

"There will be no mandatory buyouts at the federal level," Taylor said in an e-mail. "As you may be aware, the State of Mississippi has previously been given federal funding for Katrina-related recovery efforts. What the state chooses to do with funds already given to it is a decision for state officials. However, I assure you that there will be no federal funds for mandatory buyouts."
