Local residents and the state of California have done as much as they can to repair Sacramento-area levees so we are not faced with another multi-billion dollar disaster.
Unfortunately we are dealing with a Congress that couldn't move a trash can from one side of the room to the other.
The added cost for completing the project is minimal impact to the federal budget. I suppose Congress would rather wait until the disaster happens and then spend billions.
