Key Vote Alert – “NO” on the House Flood Bill (HR 3370)
KEY VOTE ALERT
“NO” on the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act (HR 3370)
The Club for Growth urges all House members to vote “NO” on the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (HR 3370). A vote is expected later this week. The vote on final passage, and/or any procedural votes, will be included in the Club’s 2014 Congressional Scorecard.
This bill unwinds, and in part repeals, the much-needed Biggert-Waters reforms to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Unfortunately, this shows that House leadership is uncommitted to the limited government reforms that they themselves supported just two years ago. Voters can only conclude that the House leaders’ decisions are either schizophrenic or unprincipled. Finally, rather than continue this unfair program that is hostile to liberty and limited government, Congress should end the NFIP and return the flood insurance industry back to the private sector.
Our Congressional Scorecard for the 113th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
