From Representative David Price:

“Taxpayers have been made to shell out hundreds of billions of dollars in disaster-related spending over the past decade. It is essential that flood risks be considered and mitigated whenever federal funds are used to build or rebuild infrastructure. Rising sea levels and more frequent and severe rainfall events caused by climate change make this an urgent priority to ensure taxpayers’ investments are long-lasting.”
