Biggert-Waters Act – Rates Gone Up? We Need Documentation
Parts of Iowa are affected – there have been numerous reports of dramatic premium increases being charged for flood insurance, along with questions and concerns about the effects of the Biggert-Waters flood insurance legislation, which passed in 2012.
In discussions with Congress and FEMA, NAHB has been asked to show “quantitative proof” of drastic rate increases caused by the Biggert-Waters Act. If you, or someone you know, can share copies of old policy bills/letters and current insurance bills with increased rates it would assist our cause here in Washington. Congress appears ready and willing to act, and NAHB needs to respond with documented rate increase information.
If you have any questions regarding this request or have information to provide, please contact Kedrin Simms Brachman at 800-368-5242 x8413.
Sponsors Needed for Iowa Night Party at IBS
