[ARCHIVED] National Flood Insurance Extension Needed (Again)

On Tuesday, the United State House of Representatives advanced H.R.  2578 - the National Flood Insurance Program Extension Act of 2019. This bill, which would extend the life of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) through September 30 of this year, now goes to the U.S. Senate.

Without enactment of this or some similar legislation, the NFIP is set to expire on May 31. Since NFIP originally was set to kick the bucket in September 2017, the program has been kept alive with a series of short-term extensions. The inability of Congress to agree on substantive reforms has necessitated these actions.

We will keep you apprised of further developments as they occur.
