Floridians,

With the 2021 Legislative Session beginning next week, on Tuesday, I highlighted my 2021 legislative agency package aimed at bolstering efforts within the Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS).

Every year as CFO, I have worked diligently to further support Floridians by enhancing the services provided by the Florida Department of Financial Services. Our 2021 agency package aims to enhance fraud fighting efforts to combat rising insurance rates by making it a felony to aid in unlicensed insurance transactions, further supports Florida’s firefighters in their battle against cancer, and better protects victims of sexual harassment against acts of retaliation. It’s no doubt that 2020 brought significant challenges to the state of Florida, but by working together on these measures and others, we can ensure a bright future for our great state.

Special thank you to Senator Danny Burgess and Representative Elizabeth Fetterhoff for their leadership and support of our agency package and I look forward to working together to enhance DFS services to better support Floridians.

This week I also called on my fellow Floridians to help raise awareness and put an end to human trafficking. Anyone can be trafficked regardless of gender, age, race, location or socioeconomic factors. I’m in it to END IT. Will you join me? Find out more at enditmovement.com.

Lastly, I announced the arrest of an alleged Duval County arsonist for attempting to set fire to a vehicle in Jacksonville. Arson is a serious and costly crime that not only results in property damage but can turn deadly in the blink of an eye. If you commit arson in Florida, you will be caught and held responsible.

I hope you have a great weekend!


Sincerely,

Jimmy
Jimmy Patronis
Chief Financial Officer
State of Florida
