Breakdown of the Show
- Terry Hadley from PowerToChoose.org joins us to talk about Texans’ choice for their electric provider. This may be a different concept for people moving to the area. Terry talks about what different charges on your bill mean and what may be questionable charges.
- Burl Daniel, flood insurance expert, joins us to take on the issue of rising flood insurance rates. Burl explains that public officials and insurance companies are looking to make the program solvent. Burl suggests the consumers get a flood map on (cost under $10) for their area and see where they land. Consumers may find out that they are in or out of a flood zone because they are redrawing the maps. Burl also talks about how someone might be able to improve their property to make it less susceptible to flooding and take that to the insurance entities for a reduction of premium.
