This temporary measure also funds other government operations and averts a government shutdown through November 21, 2019.

National Association of Realtors® President John Smaby issued the following statement:

“With this CR temporarily ending the threat of a program lapse, Realtors® urge Congress to resume working toward a long-term reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program,” said Smaby, a second-generation Realtor® from Edina, Minnesota.

“NAR strongly supports the NFIP Reauthorization Act, which includes a 5-year extension along with significant reforms to improve mapping, enhance mitigation and remove obstacles to private flood insurance. H.R. 3167 strikes a delicate balance between NFIP sustainability and affordability, and we urge both chambers of Congress to take up this legislation after its unanimous approval in the House Financial Services Committee.”
