Dear Friend, More big news! Today, my bill to prevent FEMA from raising flood insurance rates on certain properties and direct them to recognize the significant investments that local communities have made in flood protection, has passed the Senate Appropriations Committee. It will now head to the Senate floor. We must continue moving this bill to keep flood insurance affordable for Louisiana families and businesses that live and work along the coast. Sign this petition to urge the Senate to pass my bill. Thank you for your continued support! Without your help, we could not have gotten to this point. Sincerely, Mary From: Sen. Mary Landrieu Date: Tuesday, July 16, 2013 7:02 PM Subject: Another step to fix flood insurance     16   July 13   Another Step to Fix Flood Insurance Dear Friend, Good news! My Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Bill I presented today will prevent FEMA from raising flood insurance rates on grandfathered properties. It passed out of subcommittee and moves to the full Appropriations Committee this Thursday. This is an important step towards fixing flood insurance rates for Louisiana families and businesses. Show your support for this bill: forward this email to your friends and neighbors or share it on Facebook and Twitter. I also announced today that FEMA Associate Administrator, David Miller, who oversees the National Flood Insurance Program, will join me on Aug. 8, 2013, to meet with Louisiana citizens affected by NFIP rate increases and see the flood protection infrastructure financed and built by our local communities. Through this visit, I hope FEMA will come to understand that flood insurance is about more than just numbers and actuarial tables. It is about our communities; it is about our culture; and it is about preserving this unique and treasured way of life. Share this good news on Facebook, Twitter or forward this email. As I've said for some time, flood insurance must be affordable, accessible and self-sustainable - one without the others will not work for the people of Louisiana. Today's legislation and the FEMA visit announcement are important steps towards achieving that goal, and I will continue to work to pass my SMART NFIP Act to provide a more comprehensive solution to this problem.
