In an interview with the Hartford Courant published Wednesday, Blumenthal promised to “make it a priority” to provide guidance to businesses about the future of the program, which acts as a federal backstop for businesses following a massive terror attack.
“I’ve been in very extensive communication with businesses in Connecticut and, frankly, around the country who are very, very concerned about this potential lapse in coverage,” Blumenthal told the Courant. “They are also very understanding that we’re going to make it a priority.”
