Sen. Toomey Opposes New Federal Mandate Forcing Pennsylvanians to Buy Flood Insurance

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) today issued the following statement opposing efforts to attach flood insurance legislation to the highway bill:

"Along with Sen. Mark Pryor and other colleagues on both sides of the aisle, I strongly oppose any effort to attach defective flood insurance legislation to the highway bill and try to rush it through this week. The flood insurance measure being considered includes a new federal mandate that would unfairly require many Pennsylvanians and millions of Americans across the country to buy expensive flood insurance even though they're protected by FEMA-accredited levies and dams.

"With more than a month left before the flood insurance program expires, there is no need for such tactics. Rather, the Senate should be allowed to have a full and open debate on flood insurance reform, including voting on a bipartisan amendment that I have cosponsored which would strike this costly insurance purchase mandate."
