Has the Time Come to End the NFIP?
Mon. 4:00-5:30 p.m., Interlocken A
Over the past several years, both the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the private sector have expressed interest in potential privatization of the debt-ridden National Flood Insurance Program. Skeptics, however, believe that politics and economics make this idea a non-starter. Panelists will discuss whether flood risk is different from other hazards, examine private sector capacity and risk appetite, and look at how Congress and the states could manage the transition.
