Chairman Hensarling, Ranking Member Waters and members of the Financial Services Committee:

We write to express our support for advancing the package of bills set to come before the committee to reform and reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program: H.R. 1422, H.R. 1558, H.R. 2246, H.R. 2565, H.R. 2868, H.R. 2875 and H.R. 2874. These bills represent significant progress in improving the National Flood Insurance Program and address serious issues in the National Flood Insurance Program, which has been on the Government Accountability Office’s high-risk list every year since 2006. Each of our organizations have offered proposals to strengthen provisions of the bills, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Committee on these proposals.
