Surplus Lines Bill Strike-All Would Include Consumer Protection Provisions

Apr 1, 2009


In advance of today’s Senate Judiciary Committee’s (“Committee”) consideration of SB 1894 relating to Surplus Lines Insurers, Senator Mike Fasano has filed a strike-all amendment to the bill specifying that surplus lines insurance would be exempt from Chapter 627 F.S. (which is part of Florida’s Insurance Code).  Senator Fasano’s amendment also includes some provisions of a March 25 amendment by Senator Jeremy Ring stating that surplus lines insurers would be required to comply with certain consumer protections.

A copy of Senator Fasano’s amendment is attached for your review.
