Email Your Representative to Oppose the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2013 (H.R. 3370)
On January 30, the Senate voted 67-32 to pass a bill that would delay reforms enacted to place the National Flood Insurance Program on a sounder footing. The House will take up a similar version of this legislation (H.R. 3370) on Wednesday.
The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2013 (H.R. 3370) goes further than the Senate bill by completely stopping implementation of certain provisions of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012, rather than simply delaying them for four years. This House bill forces taxpayers to continue subsidizing high-risk development of flood-prone areas and sets a terrible precedent of never letting positive reform take effect.
