Charlotte Litigation Member Tony Lathrop‘s article titled, “Pandemic Risk Insurance Act of 2020 introduced in Congress — a federal backstop for business interruption and event cancellation losses” was published by Westlaw on June 22.
After months of discussion and drafting, H.R.7011, the Pandemic Risk Insurance Act of 2020 (PRIA) was introduced by Representative Carolyn Maloney and twenty co-sponsors on May 26, 2020.
If passed as currently drafted, the Act would mandate that insurance companies offering business interruption insurance policies must cover losses incurred due to pandemics and it would establish a Pandemic Risk Reinsurance Program (PRRP) within the Department of the Treasury under which private insurance companies and the federal government would share the responsibility to pay claims for covered losses.
