Governor Rick Scott has made several changes to acccomplish his goal of reducing Citizens by 50% in the next 3 years. Since he does not have the ability to do it Legislatively this year, it is happening w/ the Citizens board. CFO Jeff Atwater and Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty are all behind the Governor, but with an election year upon us, the Governor does not have any pull even within his own party. Senator Mike Fasano also wants what the Governor wants, but it should  not affect his people on the West Coast so he wants the process slowed for this year at least.This will make him look good during the elections.The Citizens assesments are still looming out there and could cost the average consumer about $1100 extra and most do not understand why or how this will affect them.
