SB 1950, the Senate Omnibus Property Insurance bill, is the companion legislation to House Bill 1495. Both provide a “glide path” to increase Citizens Property Insurance Corporation rates to actuarial soundness, with a 10 percent average statewide increase per-year cap. HB 1495 sets the cap at 20 percent. The bills also provide that 10 percent of the newly-generated revenue must be allocated to My Safe Florida Home mitigation grants.
