ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Patricia Templeton-Jones and Wright Flood were recently honored with PCIAA's 2014 Political Involvement Award for diligent efforts to address the adverse impacts on the housing and insurance industry of the Biggert Waters Flood Reforms. Ms. Jones' NFIP technical expertise and engagement with congressional staff in Washington DC during a critical time helped Congress to provide relief to homeowners across the nation.
As Patty Templeton-Jones accepted the award, she acknowledged that "reaching out to lawmakers in Washington with technical aspects to lessen negative impacts of the recent flood reform laws while still advancing the goals of placing the NFIP on a sustainable path was a driving force in her efforts."
As noted by David A Sampson, CEO of Property and Casualty Insurers Association of America to PCIAA membership, "The expertise and engagement of our members in our advocacy efforts are essential. Each year, PCI recognizes member companies for their dedication to advocacy and their engagement in the political process.
