Flood Insurance Reform

Palazzo hosts a press conference with FEMA Administrator David Miller and local leaders in August 2013.  
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) has undergone significant changes in the last year, and as a result of these modifications, flood insurance premiums are increasing for some policyholders. 

I also want to inform you about what I’m doing in Congress to ensure flood insurance remains available and affordable for homeowners and businesses in Mississippi. Some of the current rate increases are far too severe.  As many on the Gulf Coast continue to recover from Hurricanes Katrina and Isaac, these rate increases could further challenge our full economic recovery.
