West Virginia legislative leaders plan to talk to members of Congress about the rising cost of flood insurance.
Del. Randy Swartzmiller of Hancock says many residents of low-risk inland areas are being hit with big premium increases to compensate for losses in coastline areas. He says that simply isn't fair.
The Weirton Daily Times reports that lawmakers also plan to introduce a resolution shedding light on the problem and asking Congress to revisit the 2012 changes.
