Protests from homeowners facing higher flood insurance premiums because of reforms in 2012 are inspiring coastal lawmakers to press for delays that would preserve subsidized, below-cost rates for hundreds of thousands of people in flood-risk areas.

I see where my new insurance company, Narragansett Bay, was fined for delays in visiting homes damaged by superstorm Sandy ["Insurer fined $327G," Business, May 29]. This is not at all reassuring for any future needs I might have.

I would also like to know who exactly will receive the money from this fine? I somehow doubt it will go to the poor homeowners who suffered this disaster, but instead will find its way into government coffers. Seems like a lot of salt on a still very deep wound.
