This is a more complex issue

This is a more complex issue than it appears to be. Because almost all oceanfront property in the US is subsidized by federally funded flood insurance (greatly cheapening the real risk to the properties), the Federal government has, and should have the authority to do whatever is necessary to minimize that risk. Whether federally funded flood insurance should even exist at all or not is another matter.
