NAR Testifies on Flood Insurance

On March 13, 2019, NAR testified before the House Financial Services Committee on draft legislation to reauthorize and reform the National Flood Insurance Program.  The testimony:

  • Supports a long-term reauthorization and also underscores the urgent need for reform;
  • Supports many of the mapping and mitigation reform provisions in the draft legislation; and
  • Urges Committee members to work together and build on these provisions including to open the door to a more robust private market for flood insurance.
