NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ACE Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Evan G. Greenberg today issued the following statement in response to the Senate’s failure to pass legislation reauthorizing the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA):
“Congressional failure to approve the renewal of TRIA legislation is deeply disappointing. It was simply irresponsible for our elected officials to adjourn without reauthorizing TRIA. By letting TRIA lapse, they have exposed our economy and our society to the threat of severe economic uncertainty in the event of a significant act of terrorism. I sincerely hope this is the first order of business for the new Congress.”
