Letter to the Senate on the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization

July 16, 2014

Letter to the Senate in support of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program (TRIA) Reauthorization Act of 2014 (S. 2244). Originally enacted in 2002, TRIA created a public-private risk sharing mechanism which has helped ensure that colleges and universities can purchase sufficient affordable insurance coverage to protect against losses resulting from a terrorist attack. The existing TRIA program expires at the end of 2014.

Along with ACE, associations signing the letter include:

  • American Association of Community Colleges
  • American Association of State Colleges and Universities
  • Association of American Universities
  • Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities
  • Association of Public and Land-grant Universities
  • College and University Professional Association for Human Resources
  • EDUCAUSE
  • National Association of College and University Business Officers
  • National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities
