Disaster Aid Bill Passes House, Would Extend NFIP Through September

On Monday the House approved the Senate's disaster aid package, which extends the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to September 30. The program was previously set to expire May 31, though Congress last week passed a short-term extension to June 14 to prevent a lapse and allow time to more fully consider the broader disaster package.

The $19.1 billion disaster relief bill includes funding to help communities recover from recent wildfires, hurricanes and flooding, and more. Although it does not include immigration provisions requested by the administration, the president is expected to sign the measure.
