CUNA Engaged with NFIP Negotiations, Hearings This Week

CUNA will be engaged with activities and meetings on both sides of Capitol Hill this week as Congress finishes work before next week’s Memorial Day recess.

The House and Senate are expected to continue negotiations this week on extending funding for the National Flood Insurance Program, which is currently set to expire May 31. CUNA supports long-term authorization of the NFIP, as many credit unions have a stake in its ongoing stability.
