Realtors back flood-insurance bill

Property owners who opt to purchase flood insurance in the private market rather than through the National Flood Insurance Program may do so under current rules – but they risk paying higher rates if they return to the program.

Members of Congress seeking to alleviate that concern late last month unanimously passed the Flood Insurance Market Parity and Modernization Act. Realtors called the bill’s passage through the U.S. House of Representatives a step forward for reform of the broader flood-insurance system.
