Let's Push The Senate To Pass Multi Peril Insurance

The lobby for Multi Peril Insurance has reached a new stage. The U.S. House passed the measure, adding a wind option to the National Flood Insurance Plan.

This kind of insurance is vital to South Mississippi's long term recovery from Katrina. We all need to be able to insure our homes and businesses against wind damage.

Now it's up to the Senate to address Multi Peril Insurance.

We asked you before when the measure was in the House, to call lawmakers. Now we are asking you again to lobby your friends and relatives in other regions to call their Senators and encourage them to support multi peril insurance.

With your help and your network of friends and family, hopefully, Senators will pass the measure on to President Bush. Then, we'll need to lobby the White House.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
