My goal is to have my have my clip_feat save into my test files folder as the feature that is being clipped + todays date. For example, FEMA_09222022. Everything seems to work well, but after getting through the first input I get this error:

ERROR 000725: Output Feature Class: Dataset X:\Ben\GIS\Shapefile\Test Files\fcs_9222022.shp already exists. Failed to execute (Clip).

I have been exploring ArcPy for one day.
