NFIP Reauthorization Extended to Dec. 8

Just in case you were not aware, the National Flood Insurance Program was set to expire Sept. 30, 2017, but legislation signed by President Trump Sept. 8 reauthorized the program until Dec. 8, 2017.

You can read this Insurance Journal article that explains the extension here.

The extension is part of a congressional continuing resolution (H.R. 601) raising the debt limit and funding the U.S. government until Dec. 8. It also authorized a total of $15.25 billion in emergency funding for disaster relief and rebuilding that includes $7.8 billion for Hurricane Harvey victims.
