House Passes Flood Insurance Extension

May 15, 2019
The House passed legislation to extend the National Flood Insurance Program through Sept. 30.

Introduced by House Financial Services Committee Chairman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Ranking Member Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.), the bill would avoid a lapse ahead of the program’s May 31 expiration, though the Senate must act before the end of the month.

ICBA has repeatedly called on Congress to extend the program.
