    For one it means that the fire marshall cannot declare the Astrodome as not able to take in 25,000 refugees due to fire codes and so forth. He was doing his job and limited the capacity to 12,000. Now they can stuff it with as many as they can fit in it.

    The new order overrides any in existence.
