$100M in ReidCare for Landrieu's vote?

ABC is reporting that one of the clauses in ReidCare applies to any state that “is one of the 50 States or the District of Columbia, for which, at any time during the preceding 7 fiscal years, the President has declared a major disaster under section 401 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act and determined as a result of such disaster that every county or parish in the State warrant individual and public assistance or public assistance from the Federal Government under such Act and for which….” The rest is even more unreadable if you can believe that.

Barring another huge natural disaster in the near future, the above definition just HAPPENS to describe exactly one state – Louisiana. CBO says that the cost of this clause is $100,000,000 according to ABC.

I guess they haven’t found that definition yet that equates to “Arkansas”.
