Catastrophe Insurance Bill criticized as subsidizing development in environmentally unstable areas

Here's an interesting article by Arthur D. Postal in National Underwriter about the Homeowner's Defense Act, H.R. 255, which would create a new federal reinsurance program for state catastrophe funds.

According to the article, critics claim the bill would only help "stupid, rich people who want to build mansions on sand dunes" at the expense of all other taxpayers.
