FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Enacted in November 2002, the federal Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA) established a risk-sharing structure that allows the federal government and the insurance industry to share losses in the event of a major terrorist attack. TRIA’s successor, the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (TRIPRA) of 2007, expires at the end of 2014.
