Louisiana’s two senators are furthering their quest to forestall flood insurance rate increases by asking President Obama not to nominate the Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator as Homeland Security secretary.

Sens. Mary Landrieu, D, and David Vitter, R, asked in a letter that Craig Fugate, FEMA administrator, stay in his current position until the agency somehow devises a scheme to delay the phase-in period of NFIP premium increases mandated by the Biggert-Waters Act of 2012.
