Democrats Propose Mandatory Flood Insurance And Development Limits

Sacramento, CA — Assembly Democrats are proposing legislation that could block some development in flood-prone areas and require homeowners living on flood plains to have flood insurance.

In a related development, Assembly Republicans are proposing a pay-as-you-go alternative to Governor Schwarzenegger´s plan to borrow $68 billion for public works projects, including levee improvements.

The announcements came yesterday as lawmakers continued a long series of committee hearings on Schwarzenegger´s infrastructure proposals.
