The Northridge earthquake of January 17, 1994, had a serious impact on southern California and the nation. H.R. 3759 makes available a $15 million emergency supplemental appropriation to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to study the earthquake.

The appropriation is intended to increase the scientific understanding of earthquakes and to assess and make recommendations for improving seismic safety throughout the nation based on lessons learned from this disaster.
