State Policy Report - Disaster Resilience: 2022 Session Recap

Bragg, Lucia; McBride, Gillian Kathleen; Schlegelmilch, Jeff; Esposito, Lauren D.

This report identifies trends in state disaster resilience policy among enacted legislation from the 2021-2022 legislative session. Legislative trends are presented by state and region and by 12 categories: Funding, Energy, Communications, Transportation, Safety and Security, Health and Medical, Food and Water, Housing, Hazardous Materials, Land Use, Governance, and Equity. The report discusses and contextualizes findings in greater detail across funding, governance, critical infrastructure, health and human services, and equity. With recent policy emphasis on disaster mitigation, equity, and climate change at the federal level, the report aims to shed light on state-level policy priorities via enacted legislation.
