CHICAGO, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- How does the threat of terrorism differ by city and region? On Monday, April 14, National Journal will take its series, "TRIA Triage: A Discussion of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act," to Chicago for a live event featuring keynote remarks from Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14).
Enacted after the September 11 attacks, TRIA – a cost-sharing arrangement that requires private insurance companies to provide terrorism risk coverage in exchange for federal financial backing – will expire at the end of this year without congressional intervention. The National Journal forum on this topic, to be led by Editor-at-Large Steve Clemons, will discuss how TRIA affects insurers and policyholders, and whether reauthorization is a viable option.
