Update on Senate TRIA and NARAB II Votes

The Senate is currently debating S. 2244, the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA) reauthorization bill, and will hold the 5 votes listed below sometime between noon and 1:00pm ET this today.  
  1. Coburn amendment #3549 (extended time frame for TRIA recoupment – recorded vote likely). Sen. Schumer recommended the Senate not support this amendment because it would increase the cost of the legislation and has no pay offsets.
  2. Vitter amendment #3550 (community bank representative on Federal Reserve board – likely voice vote). Sen. Schumer stated he believes this will pass by an unanimous voice vote.
  3. Flake amendment #3551 (advisory committee on risk-sharing – recorded vote likely). Sen. Schumer recommended the Senate support this amendment.
  4. Tester amendment #3552 (NARAB II, with 2 year sunset – likely voice vote). Sen. Schumer recommended supporting this amendment.
  5. Final Passage (recorded vote likely)
Watch the live Senate webcast.
