Proposed Amendments to Florida Insurance Licensee Administrative Actions Rule Set for September 12 Hearing, If Requested

Aug 23, 2013


The Florida Department of Financial Services’ Division of Agent and Agency Services advised that it has published a Notice of Proposed Rule for Rule 69B-231.150, relating to administrative actions against licensees based on criminal proceedings.  A September 12, 2013 Rule hearing will be held, if requested.

Proposed revisions would conform Rule 69B-231.150 to changes already made to Rule 69B-211.042, which relates to the effect of law enforcement records on applications for licensure. 

The proposed amendments would also clarify the definitions of the terms “felony” and “revocation.”  Also, the word “immediate” would be removed from the Rule text to better reflect the administrative process requirements that exist.

Further, a subsection would be deleted to remove standards that are in conflict with statutory changes.  It would be replaced with a new subsection to conform the penalty scheme with Section 626.207, F.S. and Rule 69B-211.042.  Another subsection would be added to clarify qualifications for administrative actions based on criminal proceedings outside the United States.

If requested, a Rule hearing will be held on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 116 of the J. Edwin Larson Building, 200 E. Gaines Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32399.
