Another House member wants answers from McCarty

August 26, 2009

So House Speaker Larry Cretul announced earlier this week he was taking Rep. Scott Plakon off the chamber’s insurance committee, That was soon after Plakon sent a letter to committee chairman Rep. Pat Patterson, asking for Insurance Commisioner Kevin McCarty to be called to the committee to explain his ’$4 billion in new capital’ statements of late. 

Well, Cretul didn’t take Rep. John Wood off the committee, and Wood wants to hear from McCarty, too. He wrote Patterson a letter recently in which he says he supports Plakon’s request.

"Commissioner McCarty’s input will assist us in determining how to proceed with necessary legislation to improve Florida’s property insurance market," Wood wrote.
