CFO Patronis: We Must Protect and Empower Florida’s Consumers

ALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued the following statement on the Senate Appropriation Committee’s favorable hearing of Proyecto de Ley del Senado 1292, Fraud Prevention, sponsored by Senator Gruters. This proposal increases penalties on unlicensed public adjusters who break the law; combats fraudulent telemarketing calls by requiring licensed warranty agencies to identity their full business name an license number immediately; forces big corporations to allow Floridians to easily cancel subscriptions; and empowers Florida policyholders by ensuring digital insurance applications will communicate with the digital driver’s license. The bill moves next to Senate Floor.
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “I have made it my mission to empower and protect consumers, which is why this legislative session I’m fighting to force big corporations to allow Floridians to easily cancel subscriptions without forcing consumers to hop through a bunch of hoops. This legislation will work to ensure consumers can cancel a subscription service, the same way they signed up for it. Senator Gruters and Representative Clemons are working hard to make sure our Fraud Prevention bill crosses the finish line.”
