NFIP “Riddled with dysfunction. SANDY Survivors faced more than a natural disaster, Homeowners faced more than a Natural Disaster, they faced a man made disaster in the form of a flood claims process that was stacked against them at every turn – Senator Menendez – 7/16/19

.

We witnessed the NFIP fail our constituents at the hour of our need. We want real reform. Senator Menendez 7/16/19

.

.

The NFIP is plagued by Soaring Premiums. Waste and Abuse that shortchanges flood victims and overcharges taxpayers. Our plan includes real and lasting reforms. – Senator Menendez 7/16/19

.

Our plan includes real and lasting reforms that will make premiums more affordable for middle-class Americans. – Senator Menendez 7/16/19

.

There is another NFIP Bill moving through the house. It falls short in some areas. It’s NOT AFFORDABLE, homeowner premiums will double every 4 years and even sooner than that.

.

FEMA’s no untested and secretive methodology knows as “Risk Rating 2.0” is a “ticking time bomb” that will explode rates once it takes effect next year. Homeowners could face compounded yearly premium hikes of up to 18% each year. – Senator Menendez – 7/16/19

.

“Continually hiking premiums is not the path to sustainability. It’s a death sentence.”

.

We know rebuilding communities after a disaster is far more expensive than preventing costly floods in the first place. Every dollar spent on mitigation generates 6 dollars in savings. – Senator Menendez

.

“Most of the NFIP debt came from the failure of a federal (Army Corp of Engineers) flood levee (in New Orleans) during Hurricane Katrina. ” Senator Menendez 7/18/19

NFIP payments in New Orleans was approximately 10 Billion dollars. NFIP Policy holders have been paying interest of $400 million for the last 12 years. That is anther 5 billion. If the NFIP was reimbursed for these two items it would be financially self sustainting. – George Kasimos, Founder StopFemaNow

.

“We strengthen oversight over FEMA’s insurance contractors and include pro-consumer reforms. After Sandy Congressional hearings revealed a massive scandal in which flood victims were low balled and outright denied by FEMA and their insurance companies. Sandy Survivors had to wait years to get back in their homes. Some are still waiting to this day.” (7 years after Superstorm Sandy). Senator Menendez – 7/16/19

.

“We close ridiculous loopholes; like the dreaded “earth movement exclusion”. We impose deadlines on insurance companies to process flood claims and respond to appeals in a timely fashion or else pay interest. We put an end to the for-profit litigation system that allowed attorneys to spend taxpayer dollars fighting legitimate claims in court. – Senator Menendez 7/16/19

.

“We need real reform. We don’t need another Biggert-Watters disaster in which skyrocketing rates leave families vulnerable for the next storm. – Senator Menendez 7/16/19

.

Flooding is not a Republican or Democratic issue,it is an American Issue – Senator Cassidy – LA (R)

.

“FEMA Risk Rating 2.0 will no longer use flood mapping and zones, but a series of models and statistical assumptions It SHOULD give us a better rate. But it could lead to 18% COMPOUNDED yearly increases. What will happen is premiums will become unaffordable. This will lead to homeowners dropping off their keys to the bank stating “I can no longer afford this home” “- Senator Cassidy 7/16/19

.

There is a Wharton study that states for every one dollar spent on mitigation there is 6 dollars saved in payouts after flooding. – Senator Cassidy 7/16/18

“Why is our federal government not being proactive and spending billions on mitigation. There is a600% return on the government’s investment. There is no better investment.
Why not offer low-interest loans to elevate homes?
George Kasimos – StopFemaNow

.

Repetitive Loss Properties have a legitimate opportunity to mitigate prior to Flood Insurance Premium Increases. 1% of Flood Policies (RL and SRL) account for 25% of claims. We can address these in a few ways; buy them out, move them or elevate them. There is now funding for the BRIC (Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities program) to help mitigate Severe Repetitive and Repetitive Loss Properties – Senator Cassidy – 7/16/19

“Removing the RL and SRL properties from the NFIP program is the # issue that will bring financial stability and sustainability to the program. ” George Kasimos, StopFemaNow

.

“It doesn’t do any good to offer flood insurance to people if they can’t afford it.
My message to Congress; Get off your Ice Cold Lazy Butt and Do Something.”
Senator Kennedy, LA 7/16/19

Love this guy. I am sure his mom or dad is from Jersey. He says it like he sees it.
You got my vote Senator. George Kasimos – StopFemaNow



.

The Flood Insurance program is why so many Americans think Congress is lazy. We need to do something!

.

“Oftentimes Louisiana is compared to New Jersey.” – Congressman Pallone
“And I love it” – Senator Kennedy

# 1 I love Louisiana – the people are fantastic and the food is delicious,
# 2 great to see Dems and Repubs working together
– George Kasimos – StopFemaNow

.

This bill will fix the fraud, engineering report fraud, appeal problems anddeadline issues and the fine print that hurt policyholders. (Parapharased) Congressman Pallone – NJ 7/16/19

.

We need a “Cap”. A Cap on the Premium increases and a Cap on the profits to the insurance companies.

.

“Our Flood Bill gets in front of Risk Rating 2.0, hanging over flood policyholders. This new untested risk model will fundamentally alter premiums. This can cause a rate explosion like we saw after Biggert Waters Act in 2012. Premiums skyrocketed and the real estate market was disrupted. This issue is right on our doorstep. FEMA will jack rates up and I want to be able to tell my constituents I fought for a lower rate.” Congressman Pascrell – NJ

.

“If this is not straightened out (NFIP and Flood Insurance Premiums), Real Estate will be devalued. This is about average homes that people live in.”
– Congressman Van Drew, NJ 7/16/19

.

This is truly important for the future of our country and the future of our economy (Fixing the NFIP and keeping Flood Insurance Affordable). It’s our responsibility to get this done.
– Congressman Van Drew, NJ 7/16/19

.

“This is a complicated issue. There are a lot of different issues here from mitigation, to cost containment, consumer protection, consumer participation and a new rating system. Where we don’t know how they will wieght the different factors in this new rating system.
None of us want to be here a year from with “Rate Shock” like with Biggert Waters.”
– Senator Menendez – NJ 7/16/19

.

Some of my colleagues don’t live in states that flood. For whatever reason, we are having a lot more heavy rain events. I don’t care where you live. If you get 20 inches of rain in 2 days you are going to flood, even if you are on Pikes Peak. For whatever reason, those events are happening more and more. Senator Kenney – LA 7/16/19


.


Some of my fellow Senators think Flood Insurance is for wealthy people to insure their beach home. That’s not the case in my state or New Jersey. Most of the people who access flood insurance are working men and women. If you jack up their rent 20%, they can’t pay it folks. They going to take the keys and say congratulations, you just bought your self a house. Cause I am not paying my note anymore. Senator Kennedy – LA 7/18/19

.

“Pennsylvania had more Flood Claims than most states, because they have riverine systems. Steve Pierce stated ‘I had a creek on top of a mountain, it got a big rain and it flooded everybody, and the creek was only this wide.’ The riverine states also have flooding problems.” Senator Cassidy – LA 7/18/19

.

Senator Menendez discussing Flood Insurance “Rate Shock” from Biggert Waters. North Dakota had “Rate Shock”.
