Take Action Now to Oppose Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012

In 2012, the US Congress passed the Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act.  Among other things, this Act would significantly raise insurance rates for homeowners within certain flood hazard areas.  In June 2013, the City Council took action to pass a resolution formally opposing this Act and sent that resolution to all La Porte state and national elected representatives.   

The link below includes a sample letter, information about Biggert Waters, contact information for all La Porte representatives, and a copy of the resolution passed by the Council.
