Congress Again Temporarily Extends National Flood Insurance Program
Congress has once again temporarily extended the National Flood Insurance Program. As previously reported, at the end of 2018 Congress temporarily extended the Program until May 31, 2019. The recent legislation (S.1693) extends the Program to June 14, 2019. The temporary extension provides time for the House of Representatives to vote on H.R. 2157, which was passed by the Senate with an amendment. The bill would extend the Program until September 30, 2019.
