PALAZZO STATEMENT ON SENATE FLOOD INSURANCE MEASURES

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Steven Palazzo, (MS-4), released the following statement after today’s passage of flood insurance measures in the Senate.

"I'm encouraged by passage of today’s legislation as well as the delays signed into law earlier this month. It is clear that there is strong bipartisan, bicameral support for addressing the issues that so many homeowners are facing under the Biggert-Waters Act. I remain committed to ensuring that flood insurance is both affordable and available for those who need it, and I continue to work closely with House leadership to bring further flood insurance reform measures to a vote on the House floor.”

Palazzo serves as Vice Chairman of the Home Protection Caucus and was instrumental in passing a House one-year delay that was recently signed into law as part of the omnibus budget bill.
