Katrina Promises Missed

The Bush administration has failed to keep up -- and has even fallen behind in some places -- with it's promise to make sure small businesses got a share of Katrina recovery contracts from Uncle Sam.

The House Small Business Committee reviewed federal contracts awarded since the 2005 disaster. They found only about 7.4% of contracts went to small businesses. That's down from the 12.5% they found back in April. (USAToday)
