Gov. DeSantis backs Special Session for property insurance — but likely not until after election
Gov. Ron DeSantis said Tuesday that legislation to address property insurance rate increases will come before the end of the year, but it will likely have to wait until after the November elections, when a new House Speaker will take over.
The current Speaker, Chris Sprowls, a Palm Harbor Republican, said during Session he’d prefer to see how SB 76 — the law passed in 2021 that aimed to reduce attorneys fees in some cases — affected the market before pushing other major reforms. After the 2022 elections in November, Rep. Paul Renner, a Palm Coast Republican, is poised to take over as Speaker.
