    Congress debates proposed legislation to reform flood insurance

    Congress is giving attention to the topic of flood insurance this week.

    The House Financial Services Committee debated over legislation to reform and reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program.

    At a hearing, the committee deliberated over plans that would provide discounted premium rates for lower income homes, expand flood mapping and cancel the program's debt of more than $20 million.

    However, lawmakers failed to reach any agreement for change at today's hearing.

    KFDM/Fox 4's Natalie Haddad reports on how those proposed plans would affect flood insurance rates in the Golden Triangle.
