Federal Flood Insurance Program Extended Briefly

September 30, 2011

The House of Representatives yesterday approved a temporary continuing resolution that funds the government through next Tuesday, Oct. 4, which is when Congress is expected to consider another short-term resolution funding the government through Nov. 18.

The latest bill includes reauthorization until Oct. 4 for the National Flood Insurance Program, which was set to expire at the end of today.

The Senate had already approved the Oct. 4 extension.

Next week, the flood insurance program should be funded through Nov. 18, according to Blaine Rethmeier of the American Insurance Association. “It’s all just a matter of process at this point,” he said.
