WASHINGTON— U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA), released the following statement regarding his efforts to keep the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) from expiring November 30.
“As much as possible, we must prevent the National Flood Insurance Program from lapsing. Then set the stage for long-term reforms,” said Dr. Cassidy. “A short-term extension is frustrating but necessary to achieve our longer goal. We must create a more accountable, affordable and sustainable system that is good for Louisiana and good for taxpayers.”
