The House approved an amendment to the proposed Flood Insurance Reform Priorities Act of 2010 that could allow Write Your Own insurers to include wind-damage claims under the National Flood Insurance Program, a decision that drew flak from insurers. "There's a lot of extra stuff in the bill, so if you wanted to find something to love or hate, it's in there," said PCI's Ben McKay. Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Miss., sponsored the wind-damage amendment and is expected to introduce a multiperil insurance measure in the near future.
