WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) announced today that President Donald Trump has signed his two-week National Flood Insurance Program extension into law. Without Sen. Kennedy’s legislation, the NFIP would have expired today at midnight.

“This is a short-term solution, but it is sorely needed.  I want to thank the president for swiftly signing this legislation into law,” said Sen. Kennedy. “With the Mississippi River at historic levels and hurricane season starting this weekend, we cannot afford to let the National Flood Insurance Program lapse.  Millions of people across America depend on the NFIP.  This extension will give a lot of families peace of mind.”
