Cities Commend House on Passing Flood Insurance Affordability Act

WASHINGTON, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following passage

of the Flood Insurance Affordability Act (H.R. 3370) by the U.S. House

of Representatives earlier today, National League of Cities (NLC)

Executive Director Clarence Anthony released the following statement:

"We commend the House for joining the Senate by passing a bill that

will help millions of homeowners facing skyrocketing increases in

their flood insurance premiums. With the House passage of the Flood

Insurance Affordability Act, we are one step closer to protecting

cities and their residents from increases mandated by the

Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012.

"This legislation is critically important because it helps to ensure

that flood insurance rate increases do not adversely impact local

communities while at the same time keeping the National Flood

Insurance Program solvent. We now call on the House and Senate to move

quickly and agree on a final version of the bill for the president to

sign.

The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city

leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for

19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million

Americans.
