More than 20 percent of Illinois REALTORS® responded to NAR’s Call for Action on the National Flood Insurance Program, a tally of responses shows.
The responses pushed the association past the finish line goal of having a more than 20 percent participation rate for the Call for Action.
The national association asked its members to contact their congressional representatives several weeks ago to urge them to back extending or modifying the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
The Senate approved a three-month extension on Thursday. The House is expected to follow suit.
Illinois REALTORS® has had a strong track record of member responses to NAR and state association Calls for Action.
Thanks to all Illinois REALTORS® who made sure lawmakers know how important NFIP is to some 22,000 communities nationwide.
