United States House Select Bipartisan Committee to Investigate the Preparation for and Response to Hurricane Katrina
The Select Bipartisan Committee to Investigate the Preparation for and Response to Hurricane Katrina was the House of Representatives' congressional committee investigating the United States Government's failure to respond appropriately to Hurricane Katrina.
The committee was directed to cease 30 days after releasing its final report. That report was released February 15, 2006.
