On Jan 30, the U.S. Senate passed legislation that would delay crippling flood insurance rate hikes for middle-class homeowners across the country, including nearly half a million policyholders in Louisiana, and Sen. Mary Landrieu’s leadership on this issue was critical in shepherding the bill through the process.

“Senator Landrieu brought together a strong coalition of Republicans and Democrats to push for reform to the Biggert-Waters Act, which is imposing disastrous flood insurance premium increases for middle-class families in Louisiana and across this country,” said Louisiana Democratic Party Chair Karen Carter Peterson. “As this bill now heads to the House, we hope the leadership in that chamber acts quickly to help the millions of Americans who could face financial ruin if they delay.”

On her Senate web site, Senator Landrieu urges us to contact House leadership and ask them to pass the bill.
