CFO Patronis Applauds Governor’s Call for Special Session on Insurance Reform
 
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released the following statement applauding Governor Ron DeSantis who issued a call for a special session to address property insurance reforms in Florida.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “I join millions of Florida policyholders in applauding Governor DeSantis for issuing a call for a special session to address the ailing insurance market. This is what real leadership looks like. Since I’ve been in office, we’ve worked every year to combat fraud, fight rising rates and protect consumers and my office stands ready to provide policy support to aid the Governor and the Legislature in tackling this important issue. The timing of this special session is especially prudent as it would convene before the start of the 2022 Hurricane Season in June, which is already predicted to be an extremely active storm season. I make my office completely available to the Governor and his team for whatever resources are needed. The sooner we tackle needed property insurance reforms, the sooner Florida consumers can reap the benefits of these policy changes.”
