United States Senate

 Dear Mr. Levine:
 Thank you for contacting me to express your support for extending and reauthorizing the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  I appreciate hearing from you, and I share your support for this important initiative.
 As you may know, Congress established the NFIP in 1968 to address the nation’s flood exposure and challenges inherent in financing and managing flood risks in the private sector.  The NFIP was created to identify areas across the nation most at risk of flooding and provide flood insurance to individuals and businesses.
 Congress is currently considering several proposals to reauthorize the NFIP.  Be assured that I will continue to work with my colleagues to see that this program is extended and adequately funded.  
Again, thank you for writing to me.  Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about this or any other issue of importance to you.
