MS Insurance Commissioner: National Flood Insurance Program needs reform

Senator Roger Wicker recently unveiled proposals that would improve the NFIP, which includes allowing local communities to map flood zones.

Mississippi Commissioner of Insurance Mike Chaney has his opinions about the future of the national flood insurance program. His biggest push is for the federal government to allow private coverage.

“What we want them to do as commissioners around the United States is to include the ability to sell private flood insurance which would give the consumer a better deal,” said Chaney.
