Congress has still not reauthorized the Federal Flood Insurance Program, right in the middle of hurricane season. People can't buy homes.

Maybe the Senate will find time to pass the temporary extension that moved through the House last week. Then again, expect the unexpected with this Congress.

A Flood insurance reauthorization bill is usually a popular election year item because they are littered with pork and other district specific goodies. Anybody want a Corps project? I guess running for reelection on reckless spending isn't as popular as it use to be...
