Insurance


The Treasury Department proposed a rule that would defer until December 31, 2005, the expiration of provisions of the Terrorism Risk Assurance Act of 2002 requiring property and casualty insurers to offer coverage for terrorism-related losses described in the act ( www.treas.gov/press/releases/reports/ ). Currently the law mandates that insurers make such policies available through the end of 2004 and that the coverage must not differ materially from the terms, amounts and other insurance limitations applicable to losses stemming from events other than acts of terrorism. Comments are due July 6.
