  • RIMS Celebrates House Approval of National Flood Insurance Program; Awaits Senate's Next Move

    RIMS, the risk management society ™, applauds the U.S. House of Representatives’ decision to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) yesterday and urges the Senate to quickly follow before the program’s December 8th expiration. 

     To support a swift decision by the Senate, RIMS has launched a NFIP grassroots advocacy initiative. The effort comprises a varied communications strategy while providing RIMS members with resources to effectively engage and educate their local elected-officials.

     “RIMS is thrilled that the House has taken the initiative to examine, understand and reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program,” said RIMS Vice President Robert Cartwright, Jr. “It is now the Senate’s turn. The NFIP’s expiration would have significant repercussions, impacting both corporate and residential property owners. The Society’s grassroots effort provides yet another vehicle for our members to get involved in the legislative process and emphasizes the criticality of this program’s existence.”

     The NFIP has been a longtime priority of RIMS and was the focus of the Society’s 2017 Legislative Summit held in October in Washington, DC. At the Summit, RIMS members participated in more than 50 meetings with House and Senate offices to discuss the risk management community’s concerns regarding the NFIP.

     Additionally, RIMS’ Political Action Committee (RISK PAC) has been soliciting donations to allow the Society to continue to engage and support Members of Congress who have demonstrated their commitment to the reauthorization of the NFIP. For more information about RISK PAC or to donate, visit
