“We are well into hurricane season. The House and Senate must pass this legislation. We must reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program to provide my constituents in Texas and all our constituents across the United States with access to a program they will need should they become victims of a flood or hurricane”, said Hinojosa.
“I am asking my constituents and all U.S. citizens to telephone, e-mail or write their U.S. Senators urging them to either pass the “National Flood Insurance Program Extension Act of 2010,” extending the program through September 30, 2010 or to pass out of the Senate H.R. 4213, the “American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act of 2010” commonly referred to as the “Tax Extenders of 2010, ” which extends the National Flood Insurance Program through Dec. 31, 2010.
“It would be my preference for the Senate to extend the National Flood Insurance Program reauthorization through Dec. 31, 2010 or as far into the future as May 31, 2011.”
