        • Proposed repeal of Chapters 69O-123 and 69O-128 relating to Civil Remedy and Continuing Education.  Florida statutes (Section 624.155 and 626.2816) grant enforcement authority to the Florida Department of Financial Services (“DFS”) for civil remedies against insurers and continuing education requirements, respectively.  Therefore, the OIR does not have authority to enforce the Rules.  The DFS has developed its own regulations to implement the law.
