The Daily Quote

“On Capitol Hill, federally backed terrorism insurance expires at the end of the year, and everyone from construction companies to insurance agencies are scrambling. And the government-backed Export-Import Bank is set to also end, leaving U.S. corporations that do business overseas potentially facing a jolt if some conservative Republicans succeed in their bid to prevent reauthorization… D.C.’s plate is suddenly full – and quite daunting – with just nine workdays until the town all but shuts down for the summer… The stalemate over the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, which expires at the end of the year, is perhaps the most nettlesome. The legislation provides a backstop so insurers can issue policies that cover large-scale terrorists attacks. The Senate cleared the bill last week, by an astoundingly large 93-4 margin. The House? They’ve decided that they need a few more months to take a look at it.”
