"The Senate's supermajority passage of the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act is a milestone moment for our national coalition," said Michael Hecht, President and CEO of Greater New Orleans, Inc.  "When we began to engage this issue last year, many in Congress were not aware of the serious challenges  created by the Biggert-Waters Act, which threatens to devastate economies aross coastal and riverine America.  However, through the leadership of Senators Landrieu and Vitter, as well as the bill's sponsors, Seators Menendez and Isakson, we now have legilslation that will provide short-term relief, as wll as a long-term path to developing a fiscally responsible flood insurance program that protects people, propety and the economy.  We urge the House to act on this legislation as soon as possible."
