A Broke, and Broken, Flood Insurance Program

The program has other troubles as well. It cannot force vulnerable households to buy insurance, even though they are required by law to have it. Its flood maps can’t keep up with new construction that can change an area’s flood risk. It has spent billions of dollars repairing houses that just flood again. Its records, for instance, show that a house in Spring, Tex., has been repaired 19 times, for a total of $912,732 — even though it is worth only $42,024.And after really big floods, the program must rely on armies of subcontractors to determine payments, baffling and infuriating policyholders, like Mr. Clutter, who cannot figure out who is opposing their claims, or why.Continue reading the main storyRoy E […]

What impact she has had on his approach to the world is still unknown.On Monday, Mr. Trump, who proposed a drastic funding cut to the United Nations, is expected to host an event dedicated to a still-vague, American-led effort to overhaul the organization.

Trump Ends C.E.O. Advisory Councils as Main Group Acts to Disband

“Intolerance, racism and violence have absolutely no place in this country and are an affront to core American values,” said a statement released by the council. “We believe the debate over forum participation has become a distraction from our well-intentioned and sincere desire to aid vital policy discussions on how to improve the lives of everyday Americans. As such, the president and we are disbanding the forum.”Before the president’s announcement, executives from his manufacturing council were expected to have a similar call Wednesday afternoon. The manufacturing panel has seen a wave of defections since Monday, as business chiefs who had agreed to advise the president determined that his remarks left them with no choice but to walk away.GraphicThe Business Leaders Who Were on Trump’s Advisory CouncilsThere was a mass exodus of executives from presidential advisory councils as they opposed stances taken by President Trump.OPEN GraphicTwo additional chief executives — Denise Morrison of Campbell Soup and Inge Thulin of 3M — had announced Wednesday morning they would resign from the manufacturing council.The defections left Mr. Trump all but isolated from the business leaders whose approval he covets.Members of the advisory group had stood with the president in recent months even as he advanced policies they vehemently opposed, including tough immigration policies and withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate accord.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

North Korea Says It Might Fire Missiles Into Waters Near Guam
