WASHINGTON, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After the Senate passage of the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (H.R. 3370), National League of Cities (NLC) Executive Director Clarence Anthony issued the following statement:

With so much at stake, we urge the president to sign the bill as soon as possible to ensure that cities and their residents will continue to thrive."
