Sen. Anitere Flores has filed a bill yet again to cap wind insurance rates for policies issued by Citizens Property Insurance Corporation. Senate Bill 1204, which has been referred to various Senate committees, wouldn’t allow the corporation to implement increases that exceed 10 percent on a single policy. Flores has taken up the issue every year with no avail having only seen passage in the Senate and not the House.

“Organizations like FIRM have been able to show to the commissioner of insurance that right now, rates are not fair,” she said. “I’m going to continue to work on it at the legislative level.”

With this being Flores’ final year in office, she says she’s going to fight hard. 

“This is an area that needs a lot of help from an environmental standpoint with climate change and rising sea levels. These are things that effect Monroe County before they get to rest of the state,” she said. “It’s been a fun ride. It’s been fantastic working with Rep. (Holly) Raschein. We talked about we’re going out strong this year.”
