FEMA has proposed new rules that require new construction that uses federal money, including roads and bridges, to build at higher elevations, to mitigate flood-related risks. Is this the best way to address potential flood dangers?


Answers Votes
Yes. Flooding is an increasing problem, and new construction needs to take into account more volatile weather. 57%
Building higher is good where possible, but these new regulations sound like they'll cause more headaches than they're worth. 37%
No. Builders will have to incur greater costs in building to code, resulting in overpriced buildings that don't sell. This will ultimately hurt the regions it purports to be helping. 7%
