No Defense for Homeowners
On Friday the House voted on the Homeowners Defense Act:
The purposes of this Act are to establish a program to provide Federal support for State-sponsored insurance programs to help homeowners prepare for and recover from the damages caused by natural catastrophes, to encourage mitigation and prevention for such catastrophes, to promote the use of private market capital as a means to insure against such catastrophes, to expedite the payment of claims and better assist in the financial recovery from such catastrophes.
George Bush opposes the measure, and surprise surprise so did Jim Walsh. Of course what do Central New Yorkers have to worry about, no hurricanes (maybe an occasional microburst), no wildfires, and with all this global warming we won't have the snow either!
