Representative Bob Rommel Is Working to Improve Florida’s Bottom-Five Legal Climate
The latest Florida Chamber Bottom Line, features Representative Bob Rommel, Chair of the House Civil Justice Committee discussing the work he is doing to improve Florida’s bottom-five legal climate and protect Florida’s business climate.
“When I first ran for office, in the [Florida] Chamber [candidate] interview, I said tort reform was important to me because as a business owner I saw the continuous rise in my liability insurance and my healthcare insurance and all my insurance rates were rising,” said Rommel.
When asked why Assignment of Benefits (AOB) reform is important, Rommel said:
“[Assignment of Benefits reform] Is important because all Floridians pay a much higher insurance rate for their homeowners than any other state, and it’s not because we have hurricanes and it’s not because of the inclement weather, it’s because of bad actors.”
