BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Farm bill provision would extend NFIP six months

Farm bill provision would extend NFIP six months

The U.S. Senate inserted a six-month extension to the National Flood insurance Program in a farm bill being debated by the legislature this week.

The NFIP extension provision was co-sponsored by Louisiana Republican Sens. John Kennedy and Bill Cassidy.

“The National Flood Insurance Program is on the brink of expiring at the worst time possible,” Mr. Kennedy said in a statement Wednesday. “It’s the middle of hurricane season and we haven’t even gotten to August when the worst hurricanes typically hit. This six-month deal will give us time to work on a longer reauthorization and much-needed reforms.”  

A vote on the full bill is expected Thursday.
