Entry Title Date
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."

"The homeowner cannot qualify for new insurance discounts; and the property has never been associated with a claim to the National Flood Insurance Program."
John H. Chafee Coastal Barrier Resources System Boundaries Revision December 1, 2014
Doc Hastings, R-WA
"The fundamental goal of this law was to discourage development along fragile and shifting coastal barriers by prohibiting participation within the National Flood Insurance Program and to deny certain Federal development subsidies."
Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act March 26, 2014
Tom Rooney, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I was happy to see the President sign H.R. 3370, the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act. This bill is an important first step in addressing affordability in the national flood insurance program, but we have a long way to go to put solvency back into the system."
