Yesterday, the Senate passed S.1182, the “National Flood Insurance Program Extension Act of 2018,” by a vote of 86-13. The President then signed it into law, extending the NFIP to November 30th with NO reforms.
The MCC will be working in the coming months to advocate for comprehensive reform, however due to the political climate, we do not expect meaningful reforms until early 2019.
See the article in todays Patriot Ledger talking about the extension, and the reforms we are pushing for.
