R.J. Lehmann, Senior Fellow, International Center for Law & Economics: “From Florida to California, Missouri to Virginia, and even the Las Vegas Valley, the past year has repeatedly demonstrated the devastating consequences of flooding all across the country. That’s why it is essential that flood-prone communities consider the full scope of their infrastructure and mitigation needs, both to better secure lives and property and to ensure thoughtful and efficient investment of taxpayer resources. This legislation strikes a careful balance by encouraging such planning without burdening local communities with more top-down dictates from Washington.”
