Scott addressing flood insurance rate hikes with Obama


By Chris Stewart

WASHINGTON (WFLX) - Governor Rick Scott is meeting face to face with President Obama Monday in hopes of stopping you from paying a big boost in flood insurance.

People who live along the Florida coast know they need to have flood insurance; however, in Washington, Scott is meeting with Obama looking for help in stopping rate hikes.

West Palm Beach Congresswoman Lois Frankel says a South Florida couple, with a modest income, is paying nearly five times more for flood insurance than they day in 2012.

That's when Congress passed an overhaul of a program that kept rates low. They want to trim debt, but it has left people paying more according to the "Palm Beach Post".
