How One Senate Vote Would Benefit the Super Bowl

Senate must reauthorize terrorism risk insurance program.

“The Super Bowl will be played,” Greg Aiello, senior vice president of communications for the NFL, told ABC News.

The Senate passed its own bipartisan bill to reauthorize TRIA in the summer, but the House passed a different measure last week that funds the program for six years and includes a provision that rolls back some limits placed on Wall Street banks in the Dodd-Frank reform bill.

"There may not be any TRIA until January, the next Congress. I'm OK with that," Coburn said, according to National Journal. "Quite frankly, I don't care whether TRIA happens or not. Because I believe that markets will fill in that void."

The NFL has teamed up with other prominent businesses, including the National Basketball Association and National Hockey League, as part of the Coalition to Insure Against Terrorism to lobby Congress to renew the measure by the end of the year.

The Senate is aiming to hold a vote on the measure before the session adjourns at the end of the week.
