Marino Supports Extension of National Flood Insurance Program
Washington, DC- Today, Congressman Tom Marino (PA-10) released the following statement after the House passed an extension to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) through November 30.
Representative Marino issued the following statement:
“Pennsylvanians across the 10th District rely on the National Flood Insurance Program to protect their homes. Given the recent storms and the onset of hurricane season, it is critically important that Congress provides this extension of the program so families and businesses are provided the certainty needed for the remainder of this hurricane season.
“While this program is in need of reform, letting it expire would leave constituents of PA-10 vulnerable to potential financial calamity. NFIP policies are vital due to a simple fact: anywhere there is rain or a body of water, there is a potential for a flood. I encourage my colleagues in the Senate to pass this extension and I look forward to working with them on a long-term solution that meets the needs of Pennsylvania families and businesses.”
