WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) today introduced legislation, the NFIP Extension Act of 2021, to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) through December 3, 2021. The legislation would ensure that the program – currently set to expire this month – does not experience a lapse in authorization, which would have potentially devastating consequences for real estate owners, renters, and businesses.
“With hurricane season already underway and catastrophic storms like Hurricane Harvey still fresh on our mind, I supported today’s effort,” Sen. Cornyn said. “It’s imperative that we guard against impending national disasters while continuing to hunt for reforms to this program.”
