Statement from Majority Whip Scalise and Chairman Hensarling on Flood Insurance Agreement


Washington, Nov 6 -

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) announced they have negotiated an agreement for a long-term reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program:

“Being from Louisiana and Texas, we are all-too familiar with the devastating effects of floods and the havoc they wreak on communities. That’s why we agree on the importance of a long-term reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program that helps both policy holders and taxpayers. The bill we support will begin to make the flood insurance program more stable and sustainable for the people who count on it. We look forward to bringing this legislation to the House soon and urge our colleagues to support it.”
