Consumers sick of being taken advantage of across the Sunshine State received another monumental victory as the Assignment of Benefits bill (SB 122) passed in the Senate Rules Committee this afternoon.
The bill, introduced by Sen. Doug Broxson, was amended prior to the vote, brining it closer in wording to its companion bill (HB 7065) that cleared the House unanimously with 96-20 vote last week.
“Today’s action on SB 122 in the Rules Committee is a victory for Florida consumers and the Florida economy. This legislation will go a long way toward curbing skyrocketing insurance costs, protecting consumers, and restoring accountability in our insurance claims process," said Broxson.
"I look forward to continued cooperation with my colleagues in both the Senate and the House as we move this important bill on toward final passage and the Governor’s desk."
