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”.

NFIP extended as part of federal funding measure


The U.S. Congress last week adopted a continuing resolution on government funding that extends the National Flood Insurance Program until Dec. 16, among other measures.

The resolution provides continuing appropriations for federal agencies and extends several expiring programs and authorities. Its passage prevents a government shutdown that would otherwise occur.

The New York-based Risk & Insurance Management Society Inc. welcomed the extension.

“The reauthorized NFIP bill provides critical financial support to coastal properties, as well as many commercial and residential properties located in flood zones across the United States,” a RIMS statement said.

The extension was granted as large parts of Florida’s gulf coast remained inundated with flooding from Hurricane Ian.
