CONTACT: Tara Klimek
TALLAHASSEE – Today, Governor Charlie Crist signed into law HB 13C, which makes crucial reforms to Florida’s Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law.
Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink offered the following statement:
“I applaud Governor Crist and our legislative leaders for their success in reforming Florida’s Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law. Today’s reforms will better protect Florida drivers, institute cost controls and strengthen our anti-fraud efforts. While the new law will benefit consumers, the reforms will not be in effect before January 2008. During the next two months, I encourage every Floridian to contact their insurance agent or company to ensure they have sufficient coverage to protect themselves and their assets.”
As a statewide elected officer of the Florida Cabinet, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink oversees the Department of Financial Services, a multi-division state agency responsible for management of state funds and unclaimed property, assisting consumers who request information and help related to financial services, and investigating financial fraud.
