President Obama issued Executive Order (E.O.) 13690 on January 30, 2015, to improve the nation’s resilience to floods and mitigate federal post-disaster recovery costs. E.O. 13690 requires federal agencies to update their policies related to federal investments in floodplains. It also adds a Federal Flood Risk Management Standard (FFRMS) and a new floodplain definition to existing administration policy on floodplain management established by E.O. 11988 from 1977. Congress is weighing whether, and if so how, to influence E.O. 13690 implementation. Public comment on draft revised guidelines for implementing E.O. 11988 to reflect E.O. 13690 and the FFRMS is open through May 6, 2015 (see FR Doc. 2015-02284).
