National Flood Insurance Program Extension

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement on legislation to extend the National Flood Insurance Program through November 30, 2018:

“The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) needs improvements, and I do not like extending it for a mere four months. However, I also don’t want people living in areas subject to flooding to go without coverage. I voted for today’s extension to make sure they are covered, and I hope that the House will soon vote on a longer-term bill that makes needed reforms to the NFIP.”
