WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) today voted in favor of a continuing resolution that prevented a government shutdown and renewed the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) for a full year. Cassidy championed the inclusion of the extension and has been a leading advocate of the NFIP, which provides vital protection for people in Louisiana who live in flood plains and other low-lying areas.

"This NFIP extension means that those who flood will have support to recover. I will continue to work to make NFIP more affordable and accessible," said Dr. Cassidy.
