How the Federal Government took over the Flood Insurance Business

How the Federal Government took over the Flood Insurance Business 

By Margaret Snow


If you could develop a market for a product, then develop the product, and then force hundreds of thousands of people into buying the product, WOW, what a concept! Of course, in the private sector, that isn’t the way it works.

But if you were the all-powerful Federal Government, why not?

The “Federal Flood Management Program / National Flood Insurance Program” 



available to download via FEMA website (pdf file)

In 1968 through legislation the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 was enacted. This enabled property owners to purchase flood insurance through a Federally Backed Program. All participation in this program was strictly voluntary.

Like many Government Programs that start with the idea of helping those who need it, the program soon became a basis for passing new legislation & expanding the role of Government.

In 1973, only a few short years into the National Flood Insurance Act, legislation expanded the Flood Insurance to a mandatory status on all structures that were built in a designated flood zone and were mortgaged with a Federally Insured Lending Agency.

This legislation basically rocked along offering this federally backed insurance to those whose property was in a flood zone for 31 years. In 2004 the entire program was revised after Katrina and FEMA’s distribution of over $4 billion in Katrina relief.

FEMA was deeply indebted and it is entirely possible that legislators saw a way to build a business model that could help fund the agency. Thus the legislature passed putting the entire program under the direction of FEMA and funneling a network of fees & premiums back into FEMA’s coffers.

A complete package was put into place & a marketing campaign sold the program as “partnering with private insurance companies to provide a helpful needed product.” Flood insurance purchases were likely to increase after the natural disaster Katrina, but to generate the amount of money needed it would be necessary to mandate many more people had to buy flood insurance.

[Editor’s note:  While this article was written in 2011, much has happened since then.  Margaret Snow and some others met with our Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to brief him on matters.  It may be time for an update.  Margaret Snow serves as a Republican Precinct Chair is Washington County Oklahoma and works in the design field.  With this article and her personal story, she has definitely uncovered and revealed information that touches many people.   I believe she has provided us an example and a mode of operations of not one but many federal agencies that are actively working to strip  away our individual rights and property rights at our own expense.]

FEMA Flood Zones – David McLain and Margaret Snow 
08/21/2011: Guest David McLain, pastor of a church in Skiatook, OK recounts his experiences with a FEMA representative and a city official, who attempted to designate his church property as a flood zone. When asked by what authority FEMA was acting, specifically what constitutional authority he was operating under, the FEMA rep. answered that FEMA operates outside of the constitution, and is in fact international. Guest Margaret Snow, landowner in northern OK recounts how her property, which has never flooded, was designated floor zone by FEMA and how this resulted in the immediate reduction in the value of her property.

Terminate the OHIET Letters and Calls Needed for Monday Meeting!

phone ringing
Please see OK-SAFE post here for more details and background to this post.  Here are the phone numbers included there and below that you will find a couple of emails for examples as needed.  Please note that in general calls are better than emails because if there are enough of them they generate an office ‘buzz’ at the capitol, but you do whatever makes sense for you and your time schedules.
Health and Human Services Committee Members:

  • Senator Brian Crain – Chair                   405-521-5620
  • Senator Rob Standridge – Vice Chair    405-521-5535
  • Senator Harry Coates              405-521-5547
  • Senator Kim David                   405-521-5590
  • Senator A J Griffin                    405-521-5628
  • Senator Constance Johnson    405-521-5531
  • Senator Dan Newberry             405-521-5600
  • Senator Jabar Shumate            405-521-5598
The first letter is mine and went via email to the entire committee.  The second letter is from Amanda Teegarden, the executive director of OK-SAFE also to the committee.  Bottom line, we need to terminate the OHIET or Oklahoma Health Insurance Exchange Trust ASAP!
Special thanks to Senator Nathan Dahm for leading the way on this matter!
Dear Members of the Health and Human Services Committee,

A quick note to let you all know that I very much agree that the OHIET should be terminated as rapidly as possible. I do hope all of you will stand up for the people of Oklahoma in protecting us from any further federal intrusion into matters best left to our state and our county and our family.


I would note that If we don’t collect and hand them the data, they will not have it.  I believe Ms. Teegarden’s letter below sums it up well, but I wanted you who serve on the committee to know of my position also.


I commend Senator Dahm for leading the way on this matter and I want my Senator to know of my stance on the matter as well.  I believe the people of this state have made their position abundantly clear.  It is important that our leaders do things to make sure we follow in practice what has been clearly spelled out in our founding documents and at the ballot box as well.


Thank you for your help in returning government to limited, constitutional matters and respecting personal responsibility and privacy along the way.


My health, my doctor, my business!

For Life and Liberty,
Sandra Crosnoe
Begin forwarded message:
Dear Senator,


SB 219 by Dahm/Moore is scheduled to be heard in Health and Human Services on Monday, 2/11/13.This bill would cause the OHIET (Oklahoma Health Information Exchange Trust) to cease to be in effect as of Jan. 1, 2014.  


I am asking that you please vote YES on SB 219. […T]his entity is using the SHIECAP federal grant money to implement the technological infrastructure necessary for what the public calls “ObamaCare” to work in this state.  This means the ability to transmit patient’s electronic health records intrastate and interstate. 


This infrastructure is set up to eventually connect with the payers system (insurance exchange), completing the connections between patient, provider and payer.  (This is the crux of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and it’s predecessor the Stimulus bill.)


The people of Oklahoma clearly objected to “ObamaCare” with the passage of SQ 756 in 2010; these people believed they were sending a clear message – NO to this type of health care “reform.”

SB 219’s amendatory language:

  1. G. The provisions of this section shall cease to be in effect on January 1, 2014. As of such date, the State Department of Health shall fulfill the purpose set forth in subparagraph a of paragraph 2
  2. of subsection B of this section with respect to grants awarded prior to the effective date of this act, but no further grants shall be accepted for such purpose, nor shall any further action be taken with respect to the purpose set forth in subparagraph b of paragraph 2 of subsection B of this section.


Thank you,
Amanda Teegarden
Executive Director
