Shame Red States are planning like this. It means FEMA is not going to save them quite as much when the inevitable happens.

Oh boy more regulations! Thanks FEMA for protecting us from-..."future as well as current flood risk". Who's seeing the future risk for you? I have a prediction too- In the Future, you will not be able to afford a home of your own. But if this is what your insurance company donors want, I suppose you have to do it.

...This makes me want to feed a snail darter to a spotted owl and then cook the owl for dinner.
I'll wash up in my rain collection barrel.

The demented orange pedo's plan to deal with flood risk consists of tossing paper towels to the peons.

The expert people who do stuff like predict a pandemic will kill millions when the president is saying it'll only kill 15 and then vanish.

#2 so Look Inward (great moniker btw as it seems that is the only direction you look)
what you are saying is people should be happy with the changing climate to pay more and
more (repeatedly) to rebuild structures (vacation homes, businesses, ocean boardwalks) in areas of the
country that are prone to flooding, storm surge, and the like, and that they should just shut up and
take the increased costs (in the form of raised taxes, increased insurance premiums and such) even though
they may live in an entirely different section of the country that is not prone to such risks.
And that all of us, are just in this ship together, despite people being warned for decades of increased
risk of property loss and damage, just because they 'love the place' and want the view and want to continue
to rebuild in the high risk area, and everyone should just shoulder the burden collectively, even though,
you and I have never gotten to stay in that great 'vacation spot with the view right on the ocean' in the
area that is high risk?

Sorry Dingbat, but insurance premiums are there for a reason, and sorry if I don't think I should have to
'shoulder the burden' of the millionaire rebuilding in the 'high risk area' just because they live in a
fantasy world where it is always 'at the beach, with the best views, and the others be damned'...

Look_Inward suddenly becomes a Socialist and demands the Feds protect Red States from themselves.

Fortunately overturning chevron will allow builders to sue and overturn these rules resulting in insurance companies refusing to insure properties due to risk because judges understand flooding and construction practices better than flooding and construction professionals

This is the world we live in. Kind of like Somalia. The libertarian paradise
