CIAT will submit comments pointing to specific evidence that the private insurance markets have yet to stabilize and that without the "make available" provision extended, the entire program will essentially end at the end of 2004.
19 press release, CIAT praised the HFSC for holding the hearing, which explored the current state of the industry: "Recent events, including this spring's deadly Boston Marathon bombings, have clearly demonstrated that the threat of terrorism is still very much with us, as is the potential for crippling economic damage resulting from a major attack," DePoy stated.

CIAT is a broad coalition of commercial insurance consumers, formed immediately after 9/11 to seek a way to restore availability of commercial terrorism insurance for American businesses and the broader economy.

Specifically, it is our hope that any compromise legislation will include a definition of terrorism that is sufficiently broad to ensure coverage for future terrorist attacks; that the backstop is of sufficient duration; that comprehensive coverage include losses related to biological, chemical, radiological and cyber attacks; and that individual insurance company caps will be an essential component of any program," said CIAT spokesman Martin DePoy.
The resulting extension increases the amount of property and casualty losses that trigger federal involvement, increases the financial stake of insurance companies and, in a modification promoted by CIAT, continues to require insurers to offer terror coverage under the same terms and conditions as other lines of coverage at levels below the event triggers.
