Flood Zone Issues

Post date: Apr 09, 2014 1:48:9 PM

A thank you to all of you who contacted your senators and congressmen urging them to vote in favor of the bill that delays the massive increase in your flood insurance if you own property in a flood prone area. Both houses have approved this and it awaits the President's signature. Your calls helped.

The Governor has proposed a low-interest loan program to help coastal property owners in flood zones to raise and flood proof their homes. This would apply to primary and secondary homes. The state legislature will be asked to approve this bill. If you think this is a good program, call, write, text or email your state senator and representative asking for their support of this bill. Note: you can contact your legislators in your home town in Connecticut as well as those that represent Clinton. I have attached an article from the Clinton Patch that gives all of the details included in this bill.
