TRIA: Political Update & Long Term Solutions:  TRIA: Political Update & Long Term Solutions Glenn Pomeroy Associate General Counsel GE Insurance Solutions May 16, 2005 Political Update:  Political Update Two-year extension failed in 108th Congress Key obstacles in 2004 House Majority Leader Tom DeLay Senate Banking Chairman Richard Shelby Mandated Treasury Department study on marketplace Lack of Treasury Department and White House support Outlook for 109th Congress... Push for two-year extension Accelerate consideration of a long-term solution Treasury Department marketplace study - due June 2005 White House support critical Partisan distractions Point: House Majority Leader DeLay (R. Tex.) :  Point: House Majority Leader DeLay (R. Tex.) * * * As a true believer in the power of the free market, I am disappointed that the insurance industry has not come up with solutions to the problem of insuring against terrorism as it said it would. I know some people believe terrorism is unlike any other risk insurance companies face, and they’re right. But I also understand that terrorism is a fact of life today. The insurance industry is made up of creative and motivated thinkers who have always been able to accommodate new risks, new challenges, and new technologies. It took the wisdom of a remarkable thinker and one of our founding fathers, Ben Franklin, to use the free market to develop a solution to the threat that fire posed to the citizens of Philadelphia. * * * It is important for the industry to work with Congress to develop a long-term solution that does not involve the federal government serving as a reinsurer or permanent backstop. Nor can the government become a funding mechanism for the insurance industry. That is not the business of government, and that is not the philosophy of the Republican Party. Letter to PCIAA dated March 15, 2005 Counterpoint: Senate Minority Leader Reid (D. Nev.):  Counterpoint: Senate Minority Leader Reid (D. Nev.) * * * * * * Other views :  Other views "...the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act needs to be extended and now, not later. Why the urgency? Because companies that are now negotiating insurance policy renewals for next year and beyond are finding that their terrorism coverage will be severely limited or dropped altogether if TRIA is not extended." -- U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donahue, March 17, 2005 "There are regrettable instances in which markets do not work, cannot work. I have yet to be convinced [that the terrorism insurance market can be made to work]." -- Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, February 17, 2005 “Congress should promptly act to extend TRIA for two years.” --Acting Superintendent of Insurance New York Howard Mills, April 14, 2005 Coalition to Insurance Against Terrorism :  Coalition to Insurance Against Terrorism www.insureagainstterrorism.org Slide7:  American Bankers Association American Bankers Insurance Association American Council of Engineering Companies American Gas Association American Hotel and Lodging Association American Land Title Association American Public Gas Association American Public Power Association American Resort Development Association American Society of Association Executives America's Community Bankers Associated Builders and Contractors Associated General Contractors of America Association of American Railroads Association of Art Museum Directors The Bond Market Association Babson Capital Management Building Owners and Managers Association Boston Properties CCIM Institute Century 21 Department Stores Chemical Producers and Distributors Association Commercial Mortgage Securities Association Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers, Inc.

Lack of Cover Already Hurting our Homeland's Economic Security "Planning the day before for the day after an attack should be viewed as equally important to protect ourselves against such an attack."
