They also cite Schatz’s and Gabbard’s support for legislation to reverse unaffordable increases in flood insurance premiums. They say flood insurance premiums in Hawaii had increased exponentially in the last year.

Schatz says owning a home in Hawaii can be difficult so he will work to protect tax deductions. Gabbard says she has worked to help veterans use their benefits to buy homes.
