Editor: News reports say Citizens insurance will raise rates again? This despite the fact that Citizens already charges three times the national average for insurance. It is now time to put an end to Citizensí price gouging by constitutional amendment.
If the state Legislature actually represented the people of Florida, overcharging to the level of extortion by Citizens would have been stopped years ago.
However, as everyone knows our state legislators are nothing but lackeys for big insurance and the price gouging by Citizens will continue.
It therefore looks like the only way for the hurricane lashed property owners of this state to have reasonable insurance rates is a constitutional amendment that would not allow Citizens to ever charge more than the national average for insurance.
