Bennett calls on congress to move terrorism insurance before end of the year
The senate unanimously approved a seven-year extension of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA), a program created after the September 11, 2001, attacks that help protect American businesses from the uncertainty of terrorist acts.
"I agree with Chairman Dodd that extending the TRIA deadline for 120 days would be a mistake. The chairman has shown strong leadership on this issue, and now congress must send a bill to the president by Dec. 31 to ensure needed certainty in the economy," said Senator Bob Bennett (R-Utah), an original cosponsor of the legislation.
