Written by: Staff

WASHINGTON, Apr 6 (Reuters) President George W Bush today nominated the acting director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, David Paulison, as his permanent choice to head the agency.

Paulison, a veteran firefighter, was named acting director of FEMA after Michael Brown resigned last September in the face of bitter complaints about the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina.
