National Flood Insurance Program will NOT expire on September 30, 2011

According to Fidelity Flood Insurance Company: 

The House of Representatives passed a short term funding bill that will prevent a shutdown of the federal government and continue funding for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) until Tuesday Oct. 4.   When they return from recess Congress has the option to consider short term extension slated to continue funding until Nov. 18, 2011, according to the Federal Alert published by PCI.

The effort prevents the lapse of the NFIP scheduled by the last short term extension to be today, Sept. 30, 2011.

This is a short term solution to a long term problem.  Please contact your elected officials and urge them not to allow a lapse in the flood program!  After several lapses in 2010, it is ridiculous that we are on the verge of not being able to issue flood insurance coverage yet again!
