I absolutely agree that FEMA is the only directly funded organization on
that list through taxation. USACE would also fall into that category (as
would a host of others). But who pays the salaries and, perhaps, membership
fees, for the bulk of the members of ICBO, etc., and may/may not even pay
for time at meetings and other "voluntary" activities?
