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”.

House reauthorizes OPIC


WASHINGTON--The House of Representatives has voted to reauthorize the Overseas Private Investment Corp. through Sept. 30, 2011.

Among other things, OPIC provides up to $250 million in political risk insurance for U.S. companies involved in projects in most developing countries. Under the reauthorization bill approved by the House on Monday, OPIC would not be permitted to provide support in countries declared state sponsors of terrorism by the State Department.

The reauthorization, which was approved on a voice vote, also directs OPIC to favor clean energy projects.

The Senate must also approve the four-year reauthorization.
