They expect to introduce the bill next week. http://mattweidnerlaw.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/nfip-complaint.pdf WEIDNER LAW Here is the actual complaint filed for the State of Mississippi's lawsuit against the Federal Government regarding the Biggert-Waters Act. Florida has joined the suit, other states area sure to follow. To quote attorney Matt Weidner, "A key component of the Mississippi lawsuit is The Total Failure of FEMA to Engage an Affordability Study Prior to Implementing The Act. That’s right…a key part of Biggert-Waters was the requirement that it not have economic consequences….and in this case it’s having devastating economic consequences…and the entire Act is being violated." Here is Matt Weidner's contact info: http://mattweidnerlaw.com/contact-2/ CONTACT INFO FOR All U.S. SENATORS: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm SPONSORS Landrieu, Mary L. - (D - LA)IT IS URGENT TO SHARE THIS EMAIL AND SPREAD THE WORD If you live anywhere near salt water, a river, a stream, a marsh, etc. this is extremely important! Dear Friends: At the bottom of this email I've included contact info for Sen. Mary Landrieu and Sen. David Vitter, the sponsors of the bill. It is essential that we all contact them and our state senators in the coming week and tell them we support this legislation. Also, we need to urge friends and family to do the same. The more people that do this, the better the chance that they will get this done. Hundreds of thousands of US homeowners are counting on us. Biggert-Waters needs to be fixed in a way that preserves our home values and enables homeowners to keep their homes - and be able to sell them or rent them when the time comes. We can all play a part in this and make a difference. THANK YOU!
