Looking Back, Looking Forward—FEMA Think Tank 2.0

Freedom to build/remodel

Building projects and remodel work is being slowed/stopped by FEMA flood rules. I understand the FEMA standpoint of not wanting to be liable for these projects if they flood, but how about in the case those who don't borrow money or insure against floods, can those be free to "pursue happiness" on their own property? Why not a warning instead of a regulation?
