Senator David Perdue Comments On Extension Of Flood Insurance Program

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the short-term extension of Washington’s flood insurance program:

“Georgians living in areas that are vulnerable to flooding deserve certainty. That’s why I’m supporting this extension of the flood insurance program. However, Congress has got to start doing things differently. Stringing together multiple short-term extensions for government programs, like flood insurance, only make emergency situations more complicated. The current program is unsustainable, and taxpayers deserve better. One thing is certain – we are past the tipping point in this debt crisis, and it’s costing us the right to do the right thing. It’s time Congress develops the political will to fix its broken budget process and stop operating from deadline to deadline.”
