  • APCIA: Reform is Needed to Prevent Florida Home & Auto Owners from Falling Victim to AOB Abuse
  • Tallahassee, Fla. — The American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA) today issued the following statement, attributed to its Regional Manager of State Government Affairs Logan McFaddin, regarding the House Insurance & Banking Subcommittee passing House Bill 7065, by the House Civil Justice Subcommittee, relating to Insurance Assignment Agreements, out of its committee today.

    “APCIA applauds the House Insurance & Banking Subcommittee for advancing legislation addressing assignment of benefits abuse.  Florida’s policyholders deserve to know that when they need simple repairs done, especially in emergency situations, that they can do so without the fear of falling victim to bad actors who are targeting Florida home and auto owners.  We look forward to continuing to work with our elected officials to passing meaningful AOB reform this year that will not only safeguard Floridians but also provide cost-savings.”   

    HB 7065 has also be referred to the House Judiciary Committee, its last committee of reference.
