[ARCHIVED] U.S. House Passes NFIP Extension

The House of Representatives has approved legislation to extend the life of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) on a vote of 366-52. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell forecast Senate approval of the four-month extension before the planned recess. Senator McConnell said that the Senate plans to use this time (the new deadline will be November 30) to work on a long-term extension.
 
Thanks to those of you who contacted your federal Representatives. Please thank your House Representative, as all 12 New Jersey House of Representatives supported this extension. Your advocacy assures that the NFIP will be funded, at least through the current Hurricane Season.
