The Senate finally voted in favor of legislation that would extend the National Flood Insurance Program and other federal programs until March 28 after Sen. Jim Bunning, R-Ky., withdrew his objections to the bill. PCI President David Sampson lauded the Senate's approval, adding that the debate on the NFIP reauthorization "underscores the need to bring greater certainty and stability to the flood program in 2010 and advance a long-term extension that ensures the program's fiscal soundness."
