Now is the Time to Ensure You Are Storm Ready
Floridians know all too well that our state’s geographic location increases our propensity for catastrophic weather, and unfortunately, hurricanes mean more than strong winds and rain. Hurricanes also cause Florida’s property insurance marketplace to be far more complex than other states. For years, the Florida Chamber has advocated to better protect Floridians from the financial risk associated with our government-run property insurance entities. We have long-supported protecting families and businesses against “hurricane taxes” and making necessary changes to the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund (Cat Fund). We will continue our efforts to reform Florida’s current property insurance market. In the meantime, as both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Michael proved, all Floridians should be prepared for catastrophic weather.
