Florida Tax Watch Names Citizens, Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, Florida Insurance Guaranty Association as Financial Threats; Suggests Hawaii-Based Reform as Viable Solution

Dec 16, 2010


In its annual “Governor’s Transition Decision Handbook” (“Handbook”) published today, December 16, 2010, Florida Tax Watch cites “successful reform in Hawaii” as the basis of one of the ideas that the organization considers viable to “address the realities of Florida’s (insurance) situation.”

On Page 35 of the Handbook, Florida Tax Watch specifically names the “self-insurance system” of  Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund and the Florida Insurance Guaranty Association as the primary threats to Florida’s finances.
