The bill was introduced a week ago, but it took the US Government Printing Office until this morning to actually make the text available to the public.
The United States Congress has passed a bill which mandates the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to prepare for “mass fatality planning” and funeral homes, cemeteries and mortuaries being “overwhelmed” in the aftermath of a mass terror attack,natural disaster or other crisis.
Noting the necessity for emergency preparedness in relation to terror attacks, natural disasters and man-made disasters, the bill instructs FEMA to be sensitive to the fact that Jews and Muslims require bodies to be buried within 48 hours of death.
“Funeral homes, cemeteries, and mortuaries could be overwhelmed should mass fatalities arise from anatural disaster, act of terrorism, or other man-made disaster,” states the legislation.
The bill, H. R. 6566 or the Mass Fatality Planning and Religious Considerations Act, was posted on the govtrack.us website this morning having been approved by the House on September 28
H.R. 6566: To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to require the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency …

This is just one of those things that makes the stomach turn: the people who brought us the National Defense Authorization Act (authorizing the detention of US citizens on US soil) now deem it prudent to prepare for mass fatalities on US soil…Moreover, they’re outsourcing it to one of the most failed government agencies in history.FEMA, as you may recall, is the same organization that couldn’t get bottles of water delivered to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina … and held up hundreds of seasoned volunteer emergency service workers from entering the city for several days of mandatory sexual harassment training.
