NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) is Up for Renewal before year end: Action Needed

The NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) is up for renewal by Congress before year end. A propsed bill introduced earlier in the year called the SAFE NFIP Act included many of the provisions that would have benefited us the most. It was a by partisan bill.

Unfortunately however, a competing bill has now been proposed, and has moved out of committee, that contains many provisions weaker than SAFE NFIP. While some US Congressmen in NJ oppose this bill because it does not do enough for those of us who live on the NJ coast, our own Congressman MacArhur supports it!

We need your help to communicate to him (and to your own congressman if Ortley Beach/Toms River is not your permanent residence) and say please vote down this bill and support the provisions of the SAFE NFIP Act.

Use the information and speaking points HERE to call and speak to, or write to Congressman MacArthur and your local US representative.
