NFIP Extension Passes Congress

Both the House and Senate passed a bill Thursday to extend the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) until Dec. 7. The program was set to expire at midnight tonight if the extension wasn't passed.

The one-week extension aligns NFIP funding with the current deadline to pass additional government funding measures to avoid a partial government shutdown.

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