Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Flood Insurance Market Parity And Modernization Act April 26, 2016
Ed Royce, R-CA
"Since its inception back in 1968, the National Flood Insurance Program was never intended to cover policies that the private sector was able and willing to underwrite. In fact, one stated goal for the program was “the Federal Government would create an opportunity for private industry to obtain … experience in operating a flood insurance program … and that sometime in the future, the program could become an all-private program.”"
Foreign Spill Protection Act Of 2016 April 26, 2016
Patrick Murphy, D-FL
"I would also like to rise today in support of H.R. 2901, the Flood Insurance Market Parity and Modernization Act. I was proud to put this bipartisan legislation forward with my good friend, another gentleman from Florida (Mr. Ross) to clarify that private flood insurance may be an available option for homeowners to satisfy mandatory coverage requirements under the National Flood Insurance Program. For Florida homeowners, this is a win-win, giving them more options for flood insurance coverage and using new competition to drive down prices and expand coverage options for consumers."
Promoting Resilience And Efficiency In Preparing For Attacks And Responding To Emergencies Act April 26, 2016
Christopher Smith, R-NJ
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of the Promoting Resilience and Efficiency in Preparing for Attacks and Responding to Emergencies Act (PREPARE Act/H.R. 3583). In addition to enhancing accountability at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Office of Emergency Communications, and the Office of Health Affairs at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), this legislation makes critical reforms to the National Flood Insurance Program‘s (NFIP) claims process."
Superstorm Sandy Relief And Disaster Loan Program Improvement Act Of 2015 July 13, 2015
Christopher Smith, R-NJ
"These failures cannot continue. Here we are more than two and a half years following Sandy, still correcting failures that have slowed the recovery process. In May, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reopened all Sandy-related flood insurance claims due to widespread fraud and a complete lack of oversight of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). These issues were completely foreseeable but were not addressed, and Sandy victims continue to suffer as a result."
Authority For Committees To Meet June 23, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs be authorized to meet during the session of the Senate on June 23, 2015, at 10 a.m., to conduct a hearing entitled “Oversight Review of the National Flood Insurance Program.”"
