Trump Signs Stopgap Government Funding Measure with 1 Year Flood Insurance Renewal

President Donald Trump signed a funding measure that will keep the federal government running until Dec. 11.

The continuing resolution (HR 8337), which the House passed last week 359 to 57, was approved by the Senate in a 84-10 vote yesterday and sent to Trump for his signature. Funding expired Sept. 30.

The measure includes an extension for the National Flood Insurance Program until Sept. 30, 2021. The flood insurance program was set to expire in a week on Sept 30.

Congress has approved about a dozen short-term extensions of the NFIP’s authorization in the past several years.

The Senate has not voted on any annual spending bills, making the continuing resolution for temporary funding necessary to avoid a shutdown.
