October 16, 2009 (IFAwebnews.com) -- On the heels of the president’s trip to New Orleans, Rep. Gene Taylor (D-Miss.) is calling for reform to the National Flood Insurance Program, including the addition of wind coverage.

Earlier this month, President Barack Obama signed an extension of the program through Oct. 31, but in a letter, Taylor urges the Administration to engage “more actively in reforming the National Flood Insurance Program, providing for better disaster insurance coverage, and improving other disaster response and recovery programs.”
