The U.S. House passed legislation trimming premiums for government-sponsored flood insurance
The measure would limit premium increases to 18 percent per policy or 15 percent of an average of premiums in a particular flood zone.
The House bill, H.R. 3370, must be reconciled with legislation passed by the Democratic-controlled Senate that House Republican leaders said would roll back too many of the 2012 law’s changes. The Senate bill is S. 1926.
