BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Panel schedules TRIA extension hearing


WASHINGTON--The House Financial Services Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Insurance, and Government Sponsored Enterprises will hold an April 24 hearing on the future of the federal terrorism insurance backstop, the panel announced Wednesday.

Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa., the subcommittee chairman, said in a statement that the hearing is designed so lawmakers "can examine the policy choices that Congress will need to take into account as we consider a bill that would extend and modify the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act."

The current backstop, initially created by TRIA in 2002, is slated to expire on Dec. 31.

The panel plans to announce a witness list later.
