National Flood Insurance Program Extended Through Nov. 18
09/28/2011 11:01 AM
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which was set to expire Sept. 30, received a temporary extension Monday as the Senate approved legislation keeping the program running through Nov. 18.
By a 79-12 vote, the Senate ended an impasse that threatened a government shutdown at midnight Friday by approving a continuing resolution that will keep the government funded through Nov. 18. The key was a determination by the Federal Emergency Management Agency earlier Monday that it had enough money to fund its emergency loan program through the end of the current fiscal year.
