Vol. 12, No. 1 - Summer 2023
We recently closed out a very successful 2023 Legislative Session! This was a huge win for Floridians across our state, where we supported measures to help Florida families and businesses thrive. We passed consumer protection measures to put policyholders first and stop bad actors following hurricanes and disasters. We also passed vital measures to support Florida's brave first responders so they have the tools needed to protect our communities and save lives.
I was thrilled to see the Governor sign House Bill 991 into law, which will expand the My Safe Florida Home Program. This program was a huge success last year, and with this legislation, we will see an expansion of the program's eligibility requirements, providing even more access to Floridians to harden their homes as the next hurricane season approaches. This program not only offers Floridians the opportunity to fortify their house against storms, but to lower their insurance rates in the process.
June 1st was the official start of the 2023 Hurricane Season, and this should serve as a reminder to all of us Floridians to prepare now. We all know the disastrous effect that these storms can have, and that is why you need to have a disaster plan, so that your family and business can weather and recover from a storm quickly. Experts have predicted up to 17 named storms with up to four major hurricanes this season. Don’t wait, visit PrepareFL.com now to get your disaster plan started.
