"G. The Department of Emergency Management shall work with the Department of Planning and Budget to report on annual disaster expenditures and contracting.  The report shall: 1) specify by event and state agency or locality, the amount spent per year from the Disaster Recovery Fund (state sum sufficient) separate from any other state, local, federal or private contributions.  The Department may also report total spending from all funds per disaster event, so long as the Disaster Recovery Funds are identified separately;   2) identify any Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recoveries made during the previous fiscal year, itemizing for which event(s) the reimbursement was made; 3) identify any disaster events still open for reimbursement claims, which have been open for more than two years from the date of the event and identify the reasons why the event should not be closed; and 4) any contracts executed during a disaster and the expenditures and purposes for which they were executed.  The State Coordinator shall report on the requirements of this paragraph by June 30 of each year to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees."
