Senator Warren in Marshfield

SENATOR WARREN IN MARSHFIELD

 

Senator Elizabeth Warren will be holding a town hall meeting in Marshfield this Thursday, August 24th at 5:30pm at Furnace Brook Middle School in Marshfield.  Senator Warren is co-sponsoring the NFIP Safe Act, which is currently one of several proposed pieces of NFIP legislation.

 

This legislation makes several positive changes to the program:

 

  • Lowers maximum increase per policy from 18% annually to 10% annually
  • Appropriates $1Billion towards grant programs to help fix problem buildings
  • fund more accurate mapping of the entire country.

 

Remember, the NFIP expires on September 30th!  We do not expect the program to expire.  Congress is discussing a short term extension of the program.  We would encourage you to attend this town hall to continue the discussion of a fully reauthorized NFIP!


UPCOMING MEETINGS

August 29th: The Town of Marshfield will begin its Hazard Mitigation Plan with the first public information meeting at 6:00 PM at the Ventress Memorial Library’s New Program Room. The Hazard Mitigation Plan is vital to the community for hazard planning and Community Rating Service (CRS) credits.
