AIA Statement on Failure to Reauthorize TRIA


WASHINGTON, D.C., December 17, 2014 – Leigh Ann Pusey, president and CEO of the American Insurance Association (AIA), issued the following statement in response to the Senate's failure to pass legislation to reauthorize the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA).

“AIA is incredibly disappointed that the Senate failed to pass the House-approved (417-7) six-year TRIA reauthorization bill prior to adjourning.  By letting TRIA lapse on January 1, 2015, Congress has failed to protect taxpayers and the economy. 

“Without TRIA in place on January 1, insurers will be forced to assess their exposures.  The program’s lapse will significantly jeopardize the terrorism insurance marketplace that currently protects our nation’s economy against major acts of terrorism.  We strongly urge the new Congress to take up the House-Senate negotiated TRIA reauthorization provisions as its first item of business when it returns in January in order to minimize marketplace disruptions. 

“A failure to quickly reauthorize TRIA would be a failure to protect our economy from terrorism.”
