 HB 1171 has passed the Legislature. This bill will take positive steps towards addressing Florida’s current insurance nightmare by allowing more private companies to compete with the state-run Citizens Property Insurance Corporation and giving Florida consumers an actual choice in the insurance marketplace, but only if the Governor allows it to become law.
