Flood Insurance Rates Won't Increase

The Kanawha County Commission is happy with Congress. Commissioners said in a news release they've received calls from several concerned citizens worried about an increase in flood insurance rates because of the Biggert Waters Act of 2012. But earlier this week, Congress reached a bipartisan that would delay flood insurance rate hikes to give FEMA time to work on a feasibility and affordability study. The rate hike will be kept at bay for at least four years.
