Flood Insurance Faces November 30 Deadline

Days away from deadline.
November 26, 2018

The deadline for Congress to extend the authorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is this coming Friday, November 30. PIA strongly supports a bill that has been introduced by U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) that would reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) before it expires. The Louisiana Republican’s “clean” extension bill would extend the program through the end of May, and it also has a retroactive provision for policies renewed or made during a lapse. Government funding legislation, which must be passed by Dec. 7, offers another potential avenue for an NFIP extension.

PIA has signed on to ajoint industry trades letter to Congressional leadership, urging an extension and has issued a nationwide grassroots alert encouraging PIA members to contact their members of Congress and urge them to pass an NFIP extension.
