Statement from Congressman Capuano on House Passage of TRIA

December 10, 2014

“Today’s House vote extending TRIA helps ease concerns over the program’s upcoming expiration. While I am disappointed that Republicans chose this legislation to make relatively noncontroversial changes to how non-financial swap transactions are treated in the Dodd-Frank Act, that should not jeopardize extending TRIA. I hope the Senate acts quickly to extend this important program”.
