Vitter, Rep. Biggert Agree on 60-day Flood Insurance Extension
|Federal Information & News Dispatch, Inc.|
"Rep. Biggert has been a strong leader to get the National Flood Insurance Program extended and I'm confident now that the House will take up our 60-day extension of the program," Vitter said. "The NFIP has been barely hobbling along with a Band-Aid approach - extending it for short periods of time. This 60-day extension will allow us to avoid a detrimental lapse and fully debate the five year bill. Moving the ball forward on this is a big, big step, especially as we approach hurricane season."
Earlier this week, Vitter was able to get a bipartisan agreement from Senate Majority Leader
Vitter recently wrote a bipartisan op-ed with Sen.
