House Passes Federal Funding Package with PIA Priorities

In a major victory for PIA National’s advocacy efforts, the U.S. House voted 297-120 to pass H.R. 1865, part of the federal government funding package that includes three of PIA National’s most important policy priorities: an extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) until September 30, 2020; the permanent repeal of the Cadillac Tax; and an extension of the terrorism risk insurance program (referred to as TRIA) through the end of 2027. Please see PIA National’s press release here.

PIA National is now urging the Senate to pass this important bill as soon as possible and for the president to sign it into law.
