PIA at Trump Transition MeetingJanuary 18, 2017
PIA National was represented by Vice President of Government Relations Jon Gentile at a meeting with senior members from the Trump Transition Team in early January. The meeting’s focus was on financial services issues broken into three issue buckets: Dodd Frank, regulatory relief, and housing and insurance.
PIA National spoke of the importance of a long-term reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) that expires in September of this year, as well as the need to grow the private flood market. In addition, PIA was the only organization to call for the full repeal of the Federal Insurance Office. We will continue to engage with the Trump Transition Team leading to January 20 when President-elect Trump takes the oath of office.
