NFIP Faces Nov. 30 Deadline

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is facing another expiration deadline.
November 20, 2018

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is facing another expiration deadline. Unless Congress passes an extension, the NFIP is set to expire on 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 on November 30. 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. “A lapse of the NFIP, will leave millions of Americans at risk and cause disruption in the over 20,000 communities across the country that depend on the program,” the letter states.

PIA National has issued a nationalgrassroots alert asking Congress to pass an extension of the NFIP beyond its current expiration date. PIA members are encouraged to take a few moments to send an action alert, which can be found here, or by visiting PIA’s advocacy center at https://pianet.com/grassroots/action.
