WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) announced today that President Donald Trump has signed his five-month reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  The program now is reauthorized until May 31, 2019, protecting millions of American families.

“This is great news for the five million Americans who depend on this program.  I don’t have to tell anyone in Louisiana how important the National Flood Insurance Program is,” said Sen. Kennedy. “Now we can work on long-term reforms.  We can make the program sustainable without it becoming unaffordable.”
