Senator Clay Sweeting spoke on 12th November 2019 on the Disaster Reconstruction Authority Bill 2019.  He said: “As I peruse this bill I see no evidence, no future planning that gives the Bahamian people the guarantee or even a glimmer of hope that the needs of those affected by this disaster are alleviated by the passing of this Disaster Reconstruction Authority Bill 2019. I find it incredibly difficult to rationalize the establishment of this Authority when we have an already established agency in the presence of the National Emergency Management Agency, whose mandate and responsibilities are almost the same and if not the responsibilities can be easily adjusted to encompass those missing aspects as presented in this.”
