Schumer/Kirk Bill Protects Taxpayers from Financial Risk in Event of a Terrorist Attack

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) applauded the Senate’s passage of the TRIA Reauthorization bill, S. 2244. Along with Senators Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Dean Heller (R-Nev.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), S. 2244 was introduced in May and passed the Senate today, 93 to 4.

“Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper, and for too long our nation has lagged behind in the construction of the tallest buildings in the world due to the unpredictable threat of terrorism,” Senator Kirk said. “TRIA protects taxpayers and Chicago infrastructure from incurring massive financial risk in the event of a terrorist attack.”

Senator Kirk spoke on the Senate floor prior to the vote to urge swift passage and full support of this legislation.
