Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) http://www.kunc.org en FEMA Flood Insurance Law Faces Partial Repeal Over Premiums http://www.kunc.org/post/overhaul-fema-program-has-homeowners-calling-congress The House is expected to vote as early as next week to partially repeal a 2012 law that overhauled the National Flood Insurance Program, which is tens of billions of dollars in debt.<p>The law was meant to make people living in flood-prone areas foot more of the insurance bill. But lawmakers didn't realize how many homeowners would be affected — or how hard they'd be hit.<p>You can find some of those homeowners in Bayou Gauche, about 30 miles west of New Orleans.<p>Like other parts of South Louisiana, this small community is below sea level.
