Here we go w/ the last minute posturing!!! Senator Fasano sent a letter to Governor Rick Scott and Senate President Mike Haridopolous   asking this process be holted and  and a full hearing should take place to determine what really should happen. Apparantly Governor  Rick Scott also wants to eliminate Citizens in 4 years or so and force every one back into private carriers which would include Surplus lines. These are not state of Florida  guaranteed and could leave thousands out to dry in   hurricane or disaster just like what happened at Hurricane Adrew in Homestead in 1992. As if this was not enough Governor Scott and Senator JD Alexander  also wants to change the name of Citzens to  “Taxpayer Funded Property Insurance program” so everyone understands who really pays the bills! This bill is spoonsored by Senator Alan Hays and you have to wonder what they are all thinking about up there. Rates have to go up, that seems apparant, but the other things they are trying to do it is no wonder that the big Insurance carriers do not want to be here like State Farm and Allstate as we have this type of congress trying to do such weird things like this.What a welcome to Hurricane season w/ any news like this. Please call L & S Insurance for all your Insurance quotes and please enjoy the article  from Tampa Bay.com and the Sarasota Herald Tribune.
