Representative Dennis Keene has contacted U.S. Senators McConnell and Paul as well as Congressman Thomas Massie on behalf of citizens in his new legislative district who are located in flood areas. The premiums for federal flood insurance have skyrocketed due to a moratorium on spending in Congress. “I urge the members of Congress to do their utmost to ensure that the citizens of Campbell County and other affected areas of Kentucky are spared the bite of unconscionable flood insurance,” said Representative Keene.
Reports this week indicate that the U.S. House of Representative is close to a compromise vote on the flood insurance issue.
