Biggert-Waters Act

October 27, 2013
Williamsport Sun-Gazette

I am writing to inform the readers of an impending change to the National Flood Insurance program (NFIP) that will effect all those who live within a flood zone and must carry flood insurance. The Biggert-Waters Act (co-sponsors Maxine Waters and Judy Biggert, both U.S. congresswomen) was passed in 2012 to supposedly reform the NFIP but as it stands will potentially devestate normal hard working homeowners who are already strapped. This act removes subsidies on flood insurance premium rates effective Oct. 1, 2013.
