2/17/2022

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued the following statement on the Senate’s passage of Senate Bill 1058, sponsored by Senator Hutson. Senate Bill 1058 transfers Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund coverage for private market insurers who take on certain policies. The bill moves next to the House Floor.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “As CFO, I am committed to doing whatever it takes to combat rising insurance rates on Florida families.
