Senate Spending Bill Would Extend Flood Program

Dec 20, 2018

A Senate spending bill that would avoid a partial government shutdown tomorrow includes an ICBA-supported extension of the National Flood Insurance Program. Introduced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the spending bill would extend funding for the NFIP and other programs through Feb. 8 ahead of tomorrow’s deadline. In a joint letter, ICBA and other organizations urged congressional leaders to act immediately to avoid another lapse in the NFIP.
