Congressman Joe Garcia Fights to Protect Homeowners Against Flood Insurance Rate Increases
WASHINGTON, D.C. – September 30, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Joe Garcia today spoke on the House floor to address the economic impact of the rising cost of flood insurance for hard-working homeowners as these rates start to go into effect October 1st.
“This is neither a Democratic problem nor a Republican problem, this is a national problem that all Americans need us to work on. This Act was passed before I came to office, but it affects my constituents and seriously threatens our economic recovery,” emphasized Garcia.
Congressman Garcia has been a leader on this issue, co-sponsoring legislation that would delay rate increases and just today signing onto a letter that urges the Speaker of the House, and the Minority Leader, to take action, through any means necessary, to keep flood insurance rates affordable.
