On February 6, a bill was introduced by Rep. Earl Blumenauer and David Kustoff, along with Ben McAdams and Ann Wagner in order to address repetitive-loss properties from flood and ways to mitigate those areas. The bill, called the Repeatedly Flooded Communities Preparation Act, amends the original 1968 Flood Act by adding definitions, requirements for communities covered by flood insurance, outlines how plans can be incorporated into existing plans, outlines assistance available to communities, lists sanctions for noncompliance, and adds reports required to be made to Congress.
