Don’t Let the National Flood Insurance Program Expire!

Posted on 02. May, 2012 by

After 13 short-term extensions over the last three years, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is once again set to expire at the end of this month. The NFIP provides vital flood insurance for thousands of households across Louisiana, and the lapse of the NFIP presents an unacceptable risk to vulnerable property owners.

The full Senate should pass the flood reform bill, a bipartisan bill that will protect taxpayers, help the environment, and ensure that the flood program can continue to help families who live in harm’s way— including a five year extension that avoids short term fixes. Take action now!

The House has already passed a version with over 400 yea votes, and the Senate Banking Committee passed a similar bill unanimously, both which extend NFIP by five years. Now, the full Senate needs to pass the bill. Let the Senate know it should take up legislation to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program, before it’s too late.
