He's got some kickbacks coming his way.

I wont be surprised! There are currently no lawsuits against the City of Houston due to Harvey.

That's why you have insurance.

Do they? I've heard estimates that 80% of the the houses that were damaged did not have flood insurance.

Now is as good of a time as any since the looming debt crisis with pensions is still ever present.

You dont need to have flood insurance to get your house fixed, homeowners insurance will cover it.
