Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) strongly supported passage of a bipartisan flood insurance reform bill, which reverses the dramatic flood insurance rate hikes for homeowners. Passed by a vote of 306-91, the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act ends the automatic rate increases caused by events such as property sales and restores grandfathered rates for those who played by the rules and built their properties according to code. This bill also provides a refund for those families who have already been hit by unaffordable premium increases.

After multiple freight rail accidents in the Hudson Valley including one this week in Ulster County, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) recommended the mandatory adoption of key safety measures to the Department of Transportation. Last week, the Department of Transportation and the Association of American Railroads (AAR) announced voluntary safety measures including: increasing track inspections; equipping trains with advanced braking systems; using rail traffic routing technology to determine the safest routes; lowering speeds of trains with 20 tanker cars of crude oil; coordinating with localities through which crude oil trains run to address community concerns; installing new trackside safety technology along routes that oil trains travel; and improving emergency response support. Rep. Maloney called for these measures to be mandatory because with no formal rules or regulations, inspectors would be unable to issue fines or take other enforcement measures for failing to live up to the agreement.
