Rep. Dennis Ross Named 2017 PIA Legislator of the Year
During a kickoff breakfast on the morning of April 6, PIA presented its prestigious Legislator of the Year Award to Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL), in recognition of his leadership on PIA's legislative priorities, including the Flood Insurance Market Parity and Modernization Act (H.R. 1422), a bill to encourage the private flood insurance market. The bill was passed in the House in an overwhelmingly bipartisan 419-0 voice vote in the last Congress.
“Congressman Ross also plays a key role in this year’s reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program,” said Mike Becker. “He has always been a strong supporter of the independent agency system and we thank him for his friendship and leadership on insurance issues. It is my honor to present him with the 2017 Legislator of the Year Award.”
