Scott and Bondi: We support Mississippi's attempt to sue FEMA over flood insurance

Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi don't like the rising flood insurance rates threatening nearly 300,000 Florida homeowners so they're filing an amicus brief supporting Mississippi's lawsuit against the federal government’s National Flood Insurance Program’s rate hike.

Scott and Bondi, however, have stopped short of putting Florida's muscle into the melee and have chosen not to join the lawsuit or file a companion challenge of their own.

“We are supporting Mississippi in their lawsuit against FEMA because the NFIP rate hike will not only hurt Florida families but will devastate our real estate market,'' Scott said in a statement.

Bondi said: "Floridians are facing outrageous, unaffordable flood insurance premiums, and we support all efforts to protect policyholders from these devastating insurance rates.” Here's the brief:  Download Amici-Brief-Filed-as-Exhibit

I wish they'd make up their minds about federal subsidies.

They want flood insurance subsidies, but not health insurance subsidies.

Sure is confusing.
