In a big win for REALTORS®, the National Flood Insurance Program will continue renewing or issuing new insurance for four more months under legislation overwhelmingly passed by the U.S. Senate today. The bill, which cleared the House last week, is expected to be signed into law before midnight tonight, when the program expires.
The REALTOR® voice was critical through the process. This clean extension of the National Flood Insurance Program shows that it’s clear Congress heard the concerns of REALTORS®
A more comprehensive call for action report with numbers on the success of the various outreach methods deployed throughout the campaign will be provided on Monday, August 6.
