Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) welcomed the extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which President Joe Biden signed into law last night as part of the continuing appropriations bill. The funding bill contained Rubio’s NFIP Extension Act of 2021 (S. 2788), which will extend the vital program through December 3, 2021. 
 
“The National Flood Insurance Program is vitally important to Florida, which holds more than one-third of total policies nationwide,” Rubio said. “A lapse in coverage would be devastating for Floridians and people in flood-prone communities across the country. Now, we need to focus on securing long-lasting, bipartisan reforms to ensure flood insurance remains affordable and accessible to Florida families.”
