Introduction

The Association of State Floodplain Managers is pleased to participate in this hearing to explore how flooding and sea level rise affect American property owners, how the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) uses science to inform its flood products, and whether additional federal resources are needed to research and communicate future flood risk to the public. We are especially pleased that Congress is exercising its oversight function as it examines the National Flood Mapping Program at FEMA and we appreciate the opportunity to discuss our views and recommendations for the future of the program. We thank you, Chairwoman Sherrill, Chairman Foster, Ranking Member Marshall, Ranking Member Norman and Members of your Subcommittees for your interest in this important subject
