U.S. Rep. Richard H. Baker, R-Baton Rouge, a senior member of the House Financial Services committee, which has jurisdiction over federal housing policy, and the committee’s top-ranking Democrat, Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts, last week introduced legislation that would reform the way the federal government responds to long-term housing needs created by natural disasters.
