Marco Rubio on Property Insurance crises by Mitch E. Perry
Last night on the Evening News, we interviewed Marco Rubio, the incoming Speaker of the House in the Florida Legislature. Rubio and 2 other Republican House colleagues are going around the state, having Ã¢â‚¬Å“idearaisersÃ¢â‚¬? Ã¢â‚¬â€œtheir collecting ideas from Floridians about ways that government can make life better for Floridians. They have a website Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 100ideas.org Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and will collect the 100 best ideas and publish them in a book.
These days there is perhaps no hotter issue than the escalating property insurance crises in the state Ã¢â‚¬â€œ fueled by insurance companies having to pay out significant claims because of the last 2 hurricane seasons.
WMNF asked Marco Rubio if what the state legislature did this past session - in which they provided $715 dollars to the state run insurer of last resort, Citizens, as well as setting aside $250 million for a loan program to help capitalize qualifying insurance companies, and $250 million for a program to help people upgrade their homes to better withstand hurricane-force winds was sufficient (roll tape#1 o.q.Ã¢â‚¬?is what we needÃ¢â‚¬?)
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s West Miami Beach Republican Representative Marco Rubio, the incoming Speaker of the House in the Florida Legislature.comments powered by Disqus
