Despite floods of near biblical proportions, the U.S. Senate will likely turn the page on 2017 without correcting the errors they inserted into the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 and without taking any action on flood insurance reform at all. This is particularly disturbing in a year in which the Federal Emergency Management Agency felt the financial sting of not just one natural disaster, but three monstrous back-to-back hurricanes pounding the Southeast and the Caribbean while a number of wildfires left hundreds of thousands of acres in the West burned to the ground.
