Key Vote Alert – “NO” to NFIP Reauthorization

Andrew Roth - July 24th, 2018

KEY VOTE ALERT

“NO” on the House Amendment to the National Flood Insurance Program Extension Act (S. 1182)

The Club for Growth is opposed to the House Amendment to the National Flood Insurance Program Extension Act (S. 1182) and we urge all House members to vote against it. A vote is expected this week in the House. The vote will be included in the Club’s 2018 congressional scorecard.

This proposal is just a straight short-term reauthorization of a flawed program that creates nothing but perverse incentives and billions in federal debt. Rather than kick the can down the road, which this bill does, Congress needs to get the government out of the flood insurance market by repealing this program. Absent repeal, material reforms are welcome that will protect the taxpayers from having to continually bail out the program.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 115th 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.
