Led by Senate Banking and Insurance committee in Tallahassee and sponsored by Senator Brandes of St. Pete, the Flood bill being privatized is well underway. Still many concerns, but Washington does not seem to have a better solution so it will not wait for the Fed and FEMA. This could help over 280K people in Fort Lauderdale and Florida and 6 more states may still come. Any solution to save the Florida Housing market would be welcome at this time. If FEMA and Washington, come up with better ideas then time will tell. Only 2 carriers are in line so far for the private market policies, but the thought is that when the bill passes, more carriers will show up.
