The Florida House of Representatives appears to be following the lead of the Florida Senate regarding public adjusting. As noted last week in Amended Florida Public Adjuster Bill Passes in Florida Senate Banking and Insurance Committee, significant amendments to the original language of proposed legislation regulating public adjusters is moving through the Florida Senate. These amendments and proposed laws appear to be approved by committee action yesterday afternoon in the Florida House of Representatives. In my view, public adjusters should be prepared for these significant changes to become law because similar language is running simultaneously in both chambers of the Florida legislature.
The Committee Substitute for the original House Bill 1181 appears to have passed the Florida House of Representatives Insurance, Business & Financial Affairs Policy Committee. From my reading of the events posted on the internet last night, the Committee adopted the same language as the Senate. Here is a link to the text of the Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 2264 for those interested.
