Gov. DeSantis Vetoes Senate Bill 54: Florida’s No-fault/PIP Program Stands
Tuesday, 29 June 2021

Breaking News… No-fault/PIP Repeal Bill Hits Governor’s Desk
Monday, 28 June 2021
Tallahassee – Moments ago state legislative leaders presented to Gov. DeSantis Senate Bill 54, legislation passed by lawmakers earlier this spring that would end Florida’s No-fault automobile insurance system, replacing it with a requirement that drivers carry mandatory bodily insurance coverage (MBI) instead. This morning’s presentation triggers the constitutionally mandated 15-day period within which the governor must act. DeSantis is now faced with three options: Sign the bill into law, veto it, or allow the bill to become law without his signature when his July 13th deadline ends. How long the governor will wait to act remains to be seen, but so far this year, he has generally acted on other bills within several days of their presentation.
