FL CFO: Include Mitigation in Flood Bill

Florida CFO Jimmy Patronis urged federal leaders to include a flood mitigation requirement as they seek long-term solutions for the NFIP.
November 26, 2018

With only days left until the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is set to expire, Florida CFO Jimmy Patronis urged federal leaders to include a flood mitigation requirement as they seek long-term solutions for the Florida subsidized program. “Our state has been the leader when it comes to flood mitigation and fostering private market solutions,” he said. “Adopting policies similar to Florida's that pave the way for a healthy private flood insurance market is essential, but more needs be done. Congress must include a robust flood mitigation component to the NFIP and do so now. Delaying just to deal with the same problems later will be a disaster for Florida.”
