Third special session, but still no windstorm insurance reform on the agenda

Texas Governor Rick Perry called a third special session of the Texas legislature yesterday to address transportation issues in Texas but did not add windstorm insurance to the agenda items. In his statement explaining the special session for transportation, Governor Perry wrote, “Inaction is a Washington-style attempt to kick a can down the road – but everybody in Texas knows we’re rapidly running out of roads to kick that can down.” Unfortunately, this assertion applies equally well to windstorm insurance reform.  As set forth repeatedly on this blog and in the press, the failure to address this issue right now and reform the currently broken system leaves coastal residents at serious risk and threatens the state economy.

Alas.

  1. I have seen several news articles from Florida and elsewhere. They mentioned that 80% of the hurricane season is still ahead of us in terms of cyclone formation. We still have a lot of hurricane risk ahead this year.
