This week, I was proud to announce five legislative proposals targeting fraud that I will pursue for the upcoming special session on insurance reform. As Florida policyholders know, Florida’s insurance market is in trouble. We are seeing more private carriers exit the market, and we’re seeing Citizens Insurance policies grow. Governor DeSantis has rightly called a special session to reform insurance, and lawmakers will have an opportunity to curb frivolous litigation and fight fraud. Florida communities are under attack by fraudsters who are willing to try anything to game the system. They are stealing from us all! To win this war, we need the troops, the weapons, and a full commitment to the mission.

Today, I also applauded Governor Ron DeSantis for signing House Bill 31 to grant firefighters vital legal protections under Florida law. As Florida’s State Fire Marshal, I was honored to champion House Bill 31 on behalf of Florida’s firefighters and I thank Senator Hooper and Representative Busatta-Cabrera for ensuring that Florida will now provide better legal safeguards for our firefighters. This bill will ensure our first responders rights are protected and that these men and women will be treated fairly under the law.

Lastly, I want to remind Floridians the importance of reporting fraud in Florida. If you see something, report it immediately at FraudFreeFlorida.com or call my Insurance Fraud Hotline at 1-800-378-0445 available Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST. By reporting fraud, you could be eligible for up to $25,000 in rewards.
