Tell Congress To Reauthorize The National Flood Insurance Program!

Posted on 28. Jun, 2010 by

Fourteen days into the 2010 hurricane season, Congress has yet to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which lapsed on May 31, 2010.  This means that the NFIP no longer has the authority to issue new policies, increase coverage on existing policies, or issue renewal policies. Affected property owners could include those who need to renew policies that were not renewed prior to the end of the 30-day grace period, homebuyers who must purchase flood insurance as a condition for obtaining mortgages from federally regulated lenders, and property owners refinancing existing mortgages who must purchase or renew coverage.

In a region recently devastated by flooding and facing an active hurricane season made even more threatening by the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, the lapse of the NFIP presents an unacceptable risk to vulnerable property owners.  Please contact your member of Congress (insert appropriate link) today and urge them to pass H.R. 4213 immediately, which contains an NFIP authorization through December 31, 2010.
