One-week Flood Insurance Extension Up

The House is expected to vote on a one-week extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) as early as today. The NFIP expires at midnight Friday.

The one-week extension would carry the program through Dec. 7 aligning it with the current deadline to pass additional government funding measures to avoid a government shutdown.

While the House passed a long-term extension and reform package last year, the Senate has yet to act on a broader measure.
