What's Your Point? - Houston regulations for building homes

- In response to the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, Houston City Council pushed through new flood damage control standards mandating future structures be built two feet above the 500-year flood plain.

Critics say the new rules will substantially increase the cost of homes. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner says the tougher standards are absolutely necessary to protect lives and property in the uncertain decades to come.

The What's Your Point? panel includes associate editor of Breitbart Texas Bob Price, progressive commentator and attorney Nyanza Moore, Chicano educator and activist Tony Diaz, host of "Sunday Morning Live" Marcus Davis, businessman, columnist and former Mayor of Kemah Bill King and conservative strategist Jessica Colon discussing the benefits and costs of the new building mandates.
