CFO Sink Applauds House Council for Supporting Increased Protections for Military

4/20/2007

(850) 413-2842  
 
TALLAHASSEE – Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink issued the following statement today, in response to the House Policy and Budget Council’s passage of House Bill 1381, which prohibits the targeting of military personnel through unscrupulous practices such as misrepresentation and selling unnecessary insurance products:

“Florida’s servicemen and women have given a great deal to protect our freedoms, and they deserve nothing less than the best financial consumer advice for themselves and their families.

Today’s decision by the House Council is truly a win for Florida’s servicemen and women.  I can’t think of a better way to show our appreciation for their service and sacrifice than to ensure they come home to a financially secure future.”
