#1 Hopefully, taxpayer funding from "Right to Work" states will be turned away.

#2 Like the Obamacare taxes, the FEMA taxes are being stealthily applied. They're having an 'outside' firm re-surveying flood plains without using basic considerations to include the record of water fall, just height with no reference to volume. They arbitrarily choose a 'hundred year' or 'thousand year' mark then follow the topographical features. Home owners get letters from their mortgage companies saying they're in flood plains and must purchase flood insurance. Areas that haven't seen waters since man has been on the continent are receiving such letters. It's all done magically with 'regulations'. Got to make up that 18 billion some how.

#3 Private insurers don't cover flooding, BECAUSE IT'S STUPID TO BUILD ON FLOOD PLAINS!

Why is the Government crating moral hazard with these tax-wasting subsidies for reckless land development?!?

#4 re: Flood-plain mapping. If you have a project that impacts the flood plain by more than 1' you are required to file a CLOMR (Conditional Letter of map revision) prior to regulatory approval, and a final LOMR (yeah). There should be no surprises..

Re: Quake insurance. I do not pay for it, Single family homes (wood/stucco) are the most forgiving structures in a quake. I also believe that if a quake is big enough to do widespread damage in a So Cal metropolis, I'll My grandchildren will be getting pennies on my claim when it's resolved

Because stupid people who build on flood plains count for more than the rest of the electorate, something like that.
