Statement by the Press Secretary

The Administration applauds the bipartisan efforts of Chairman Sarbanes, Senator Gramm, Senator Dodd, and Senator Enzi to develop a temporary, limited program for terrorism risk insurance coverage.  The Administration supports their bill and calls for swift Senate consideration.  In the interest of getting legislation signed into law before the end of this session of Congress, the Administration also looks forward to working with the House to pass legislation that provides for insurance protection against terrorism.
