House passes NFIP extension, no Senate vote yet

On July 25, the U.S. House of Representatives passed an extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) through Nov. 30 by a vote of 366 to 52. The bill next moves to the U.S. Senate for its consideration with little time to spare before the July 31 deadline. Congress has enacted six short-term extensions of the NFIP since September 2017. More than 3,500 New York REALTORS answered this critical Call for Action urging Congress to act. You can still take action here and urge the Senate to pass the extension without any lapse before it’s too late.
