The Flood Insurance Reform and Modernization Act of 2007(S. 2284) was introduced in the Senate on November 1, 2007, by Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.). The bill sought to restore the financial solvency of the national flood insurance program, to provide coverage for damage from storm winds and waters (or a combination of both) and to update and consolidate flood maps. The Senate eventually incorporated this measure into H.R. 3121, which was sent to conference committee.
