State seeks to scuttle challenge to insurance law that places roofer restrictions

TALLAHASSEE – Saying the property-insurance market “remains in crisis,” the state Monday asked a federal judge to toss out a challenge to a law that places restrictions on roofers.

An attorney for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation disputed that the law, passed in 2021 and revised during a May special legislative session, violates roofers’ First Amendment rights. The revised version includes requiring roofers to put disclosures on advertising – a requirement that the lawsuit described as “unduly burdensome.”
