Roundup: ICF and Gaylord
From wire reports:
*Louisiana officials threatened to withhold $3 million from ICF International of Fairfax, which is managing the Road Home program for hurricane victims, unless possible errors and incomplete documentation problems are resolved. ICF has 14 days to fix problems in 607 aid cases or the state will keep $5,495 for each one that is not addressed, state officials said.
ICF promised swifter action. "We fully support the state's effort to reconcile the less than 1 percent of closed files in question and will work quickly to ensure all documentation in closed files is final," ICF spokeswoman Gentry Brann said in a statement. Louisiana Recovery Authority spokeswoman Christina Stephens disputed ICF's percentage, saying problems were found in 66 percent of the 1,779 closed files the state reviewed.
*Problems with mice and the norovirus at Gaylord Entertainment's National Harbor in Prince George's County hurt its stock, which fell $2.27 yesterday, or 7.2 percent, to close at $29.10.
