SPECIAL NOTE FROM NAR —
We are pleased to report that the House of Representatives passed a five year reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program by a vote of 406-22 (HR 1309) late Tuesday night. This major step forward was due in great part to REALTORS® like you being heard on this issue and sending a letter to your U.S. Representative. You can check how your Representative voted here.
We still have a ways to go before we are finished on this issue, as the Senate has not yet acted. So please take action if you have not yet done so as the Call for Action is still active for the U.S. Senate. Just visit www.Realtoractioncenter.com to take action.
We will keep you informed on any future steps if they are needed in the Senate. Thank you again for your participation and support of our efforts on your behalf.
With much appreciation,
NAR Government Affairs and NAR Community and Political Affairs
