Key Vote Alert – “NO” on Senate TRIA Bill (S. 2244)



The Club for Growth urges all Senators to vote “NO” on the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (S. 2244) sponsored by Sen. Chuck Schumer. A vote is expected later today. This vote will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2014 Congressional Scorecard.

This program was meant to be temporary when it was created in 2001, so terminating the program or, at the very least, winding it down, would be the best course of action. Instead, this bill extends the program for seven more years with only modest reforms. A country that believes in free markets should not have a federal government subsidizing insurance policies at the bidding of various special interests. Fiscally conservative Senators should vigorously oppose this legislation.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 113th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
