Editor: Malfeasance continues to run amok in Tallahassee when it comes to property insurance. In the last 10 years this state’s property insurance rates have gone up 800 percent. Property insurance rates in Florida are now three times the national average. Incredibly, the governor and many of our representatives in the state capitol think the problem is that insurance rates are actually too low and that is why there is so little competition in the insurance market.
Sky-high insurance rates have impoverished the hurricane lashed property owners of Florida. Proof beyond a reasonable doubt that our state legislators are complete lackeys for big insurance. How do these people get elected?
