Tell the Senate to Put the Brakes on Higher Auto Rates
By: Florida Chamber of Commerce
On February 28 at 4 P.M., the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services will debate a bill which would end the requirement that Florida drivers obtain no-fault personal injury protection insurance (PIP) coverage.
SB 150 would eliminate “no fault” insurance and require drivers to carry bodily injury protection insurance. Florida’s legal climate ranks in the bottom five, and is the worst “judicial hellhole” in the country. Our poor legal climate, along with a lack of bad faith reform which billboard trial lawyers use to increase the cost of claims, will drive up the cost of auto insurance over time as the number of lawsuits and the amount of each claim increases.
If you are wondering if this legislation is good for you as a consumer, ask yourself one question: “Why is it billboard trial lawyers’ number one must-pass bill?”
