The House of Representatives yesterday extended the National Flood Insurance Program until Sept. 30, 2021 as part of a measure to fund the federal government through December 11.
The flood insurance program is currently set to expire in a week on Sept 30.
The measure must still be passed by the Senate.
The House vote on the funding measure was 359 to 57.
Congress has approved about a dozen short-term extensions of the NFIP’s authorization in the past several years.
