Flood plain management. Prohibits the director of the department of natural resources from exercising the director's statutory authority to remove or eliminate an abode or residence from a floodway if: (1) a permit for the construction of the abode or residence was issued by the county in which the abode or residence was constructed; (2) the location of the abode or residence was not shown as being within a special flood hazard area in the Federal Emergency Management Agency Flood Insurance Rate Maps available to the county official when the county official issued the permit; (3) the abode or residence was built in compliance with the county construction permit; and (4) the county official who issued the permit did so in good faith and in the belief that the construction of the abode or residence would not violate the prohibition against building an abode or residence in a floodway.
