The group, headed by Government Reform Chairman Tom Davis (R-Va.), included members of the Government Reform, Homeland Security, and Transportation and Infrastructure panels.

At press time Friday a schedule had not been finalized, but House Members, who were scheduled to depart Sunday, expected to visit New Orleans and Mississippi.

A Senate delegation, led by Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), visited the Gulf Coast area late last week.
