Dear REALTOR® Member,
Thank you for responding to the National Association of REALTORS (NAR) Call for Action regarding the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
More than 121,000 REALTORS from across the nation took action speaking in a unified voice and Congress has responded.
On September 7, the United States Senate voted to pass a three-month extension of the NFIP until December 8, 2017. The House of Representatives passed the legislation on Friday, September 8, 2017, and the President signed the bill into law later that day.
While this legislation keeps the NFIP operational until December 8, 2017, NAR will continue legislative advocacy efforts for the 21st Century Flood Reform Act until this long-term reauthorization and reform bill is enacted.
Thank you for your continued support on this critical issue and for all your efforts to help our REALTOR colleagues and homeowners affected by flooding from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma these past weeks! For more ways you can help, visit our REALTORS Relief Foundation here.
William E. Brown
2017 President, National Association of REALTORS
