SNL: MarketWeek: Reinsurers' pricing woes mean big bargains for P&C insurers

snl.com — The state-run insurer needed to fill a $750 million hole left by the expiration of a catastrophe bond and then renew another $854 million of traditional reinsurance coverage. Given all the reports of falling rates in the reinsurance sector, it hoped to accomplish both at a lower price than it had in 2013.

SNL: Q&A: House reauthorization bill a first step to phasing out TRIA, Neugebauer says

snl.com — Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, on June 17 officially unveiled his plan to reauthorize the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program, backing a five-year extension that would gradually reduce the government's obligations. The legislation is a more conservative alternative to the Senate's version and aims to set the stage for the federal backstop's eventual elimination.

Briefing Room | SNL

snl.com — Congress could be forced to settle for a short-term extension of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program if lawmakers cannot compromise on multi-year legislation, Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, told SNL on June 17. Neugebauer authored a House proposal that would reauthorize the federal backstop for five years, but significantly reduce the government's role and aim to eventually phase it out altogether.
