Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) yesterday voted to extend the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) through the end of the Atlantic hurricane season. 

"As we enter hurricane season, the need to extend the program is urgent for the First District," said Carter. "While I am very glad the program has been extended, we now need to work on real reforms to improve it. We must work to give the program more financial stability, increase competition with the private sector, and give localities more flexibility."

The National Flood Insurance Program Extension Act passed the House yesterday with Carter's support. The legislation authorizes the NFIP through November 30, 2018.
