In my post yesterday about whether windstorm insurance should cover losses from flooding as well as losses from wind and wind-driven rain, I referred to a bill that had been filed by State Senator Rodney Ellis that would have required exactly that. The senator’s office asked me to clarify that the bill was filed during the 80th Legislature (which is in Texas Watch’s letter) and is not an attempt to change the rules while the Houston-Galveston area is still reeling from hurricane damage. Readers have now been so informed.
