Flood Insurance Program http://whqr.org en Wrightsville Beach Candidates Tackle Flood Insurance Concerns http://whqr.org/post/wrightsville-beach-candidates-tackle-flood-insurance-concerns <p>Five candidates are running for two seats on the Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen this November. Of top concern to the town is impending legislation that would increase its home and business owners’ flood insurance rates. The two alderman hopefuls who attended last night’s beach town forum at WHQR are both campaigning on their mission to delay implementation of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act. This federal law is meant to recover recent losses to FEMA’s Flood Insurance Program, and stands to significantly raise local insurance rates.</p> Wed, 23 Oct 2013 04:16:12 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 45014 at http://whqr.org Wrightsville Beach Candidates Tackle Flood Insurance Concerns
