$102 Million In FEMA Contracts Questioned

BATON ROUGE (CN) - In a suit that alleges back-room dealing in southern Louisiana, an RV dealer's assocation says in East Baton Rouge Parish Court that the Louisiana Recreational and Used Motor Vehicle Commission violated open meetings law in awarding two no-bid contracts worth $102 million for FEMA travel trailers to Bourget's, a motorcycle dealer.

The Louisiana Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association claims in East Baton Rouge Parish Court. Bourget's had no license to make the trailers. The association also claims Bourget's got the contracts and applied for the FEMA license after it had already bought and resold the trailers to FEMA. It claims the Commission has tried to hold all meetings related to this in secret, illegally.
