House Bill 1171 relating to Residential Property Insurance
House Bill 1171 relating to Residential Property Insurance by Representatives Bill Proctor (R-Saint Augustine) and John Wood (R-Haines City) was passed with a strike-all amendment by the House Insurance, Business and Financial Affairs Policy Committee (17Y-0N) today, March 27, 2009.

Of particular interest, the bill, as amended, provides that certain residential property insurers would not be subject to Citizens Property Insurance Assessments (“non-assessable residential property insurers”). The bill also states that an insurer may offer non-assessable residential property insurance policies if the insurer maintains a surplus greater or equal to $500 million.
