Here they go, another tax burden that will do no good for the future. They just need to establish some different zoning laws for developing in hazardous areas and it doesn't cost a dime to tax payers or government or 10 generations of family. But government hasn't yet grasped the concept of simplicity in governing and rule of order.

The only alternative is for the state or cities to make developers prepay for disaster clean up and land restoration if they don't comply with laws of nature impact costs.

To try and outguess the future is a waste of time and its an unsustainable concept that may never happen in 200 years, long after we are gone. If preparedness for disasters are not designed in then it should not be an after the fact fear and its a poor excuse to expand more government and more taxes for something that can't be prevented. Beside, any such project will fall into disrepair and defunded with less and less importance for every year that passes for the same reason they already new, the hazards were there but failed to plan for them and is no longer a threat.
