Matt Schmucker/Church Administrator: I was quite surprised to see that it was pulled, and we were given very little notice to find a new company. Teri Okita/Reporting: The church isnt alone. Many other businesses large and sall around the Capitol and around places like the White House are seeing their rates jump or cancelled because of their proximity to terrorist targets. A FEW CARRIERS HAVE BEGUN OFFERING TERRORISM INSURANCE. BUT, THE COVERAGE MAY BE TOO COSTLY FOR SMALL GROUPS LIKE THE CHURCH AND TOO LIMITED IN SCOPE FOR HIGH-RISK AREAS, LIKE STADIUMS, SKYSCRAPERS, AND FAMOUS LANDMARKS.
Marty DePoy/Coalition to Insure Against Terrorism: It comes with all sorts of exclusions. It doesnt cover chemical,

biological, those types of attacks that our leaders warn us everyday that we need to be on the lookout for. THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY SAYS, WITH ALL THATS HAPPENED SINCE 9-11, IT SIMPLY CANT UNDERWRITE THE LEVEL OF COVERAGE PEOPLE WANT AND NEED. ITS HOPING CONGRESS PASSES LEGISLATION WHERE THE GOVERNMENT WOULD ABSORB MUCH OF THE INSURANCE COSTS OF ANOTHER ATTACK . BUT AT LEAST ONE WATCHDOG GROUP BELIEVES THE INDUSTRYS CLAIMS ARE UNFOUNDED AND A WAY FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES TO SHIRK FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. Robert Hunter/Consumer Federation of America: There is not broad-based terrorism insurance crisis. There is stand-alone terrorism insurance available sufficient for most risks.
