Local lawmakers call for action to prevent future flooding
State Sen. Pete Harckham (D-40) is advocating for measures to prevent future flooding.
He is proposing the creation of a state "Office of Flooding and Storm Water Management."
Harckham emphasizes the need for capital investment, aiming to allocate $500 million to aid municipalities and regions in fortifying against weather-related disasters.
This initiative is aimed at safeguarding transit systems, schools, and businesses from the impact of heavy rainfall.
