    With Sprowls still Speaker, better question is, will any meaningful reforms actually be made?

    If the goal is to enact reforms to impact June 1 & Reinsurance renewals, they were needed last year. That ship’s sailed..

      I think they will throw a hail mary by increasing FCHF coverage and lower the attach rate. Without that we will certainly see failure.

        I fear that would really only be a band-aid. It might help a little bit but it doesn’t change the overarching issue of excessive litigation. That’s the primary driver, and I’m unsure if politicians could come up with a bipartisan solution to solve such a deep issue.

          If it buys us until we have a new speaker I’m all for it.

        Given the Billions in extra capacity the FCHF has that most insurers have yet to dip into despite heavy CAT activity in recent years – I’d go all-in on that bet.

    I hate government intervention and so forth but, loopholes in the laws allow lawyers to charge two to five times normal fees on a homeowners claim and that just has to stop. To really save the FL HO enterprise we will probably need a bail in/bail out of some kind. Not sure how it would work really but, if a major player goes down (like FedNat) the disruption and chaos will not be controllable.
