Budget Deal Finally Emerges
Monday, 01 May 2017
Tallahassee – State lawmakers finally reached preliminary agreement late last week – the next to the last week of their 2017 regular session – on the broad outline of a state government spending plan for the next fiscal year. Now the race is on to hammer out the details before Tuesday of this week, the date the final budget must be placed on members’ desks to meet the required 72-hour “cooling-off” period before a final vote can occur on this Friday, the last scheduled day of their annual 60-day session. On-time adjournment is once again a possibility.

Full House Passes PIP Repeal, BI Replacement
Wednesday, 19 April 2017
Wednesday, April 19, 2017 – 2:40 p.m., Tallahassee – Moments ago the full Florida House passed their version of a bill proposing to repeal Florida’s decades-old no-fault auto insurance system and replace it with a new at-fault system requiring drivers to carry mandatory bodily injury and property damage coverage. The proposal, HB 1063 by Rep. Erin Grall (R-Vero Beach), passed on a vote of 89 to 29 after slightly over a half-hour of debate.

Short “Week” Includes More PIP Action
Monday, 17 April 2017
Tallahassee, Monday, April 17, 2017 – Observing time for the Passover and Easter holidays, last week state lawmakers met for just two days in what was supposed to be a budget-only workweek. At least that was until two separate committee meetings were scheduled at the last minute specifically for the purpose of hearing both the Senate and House versions of bills seeking to repeal Florida’s no-fault/personal injury protection insurance requirement and replace it with a new at-fault system. Both bills handily passed their committees.

Senate, House Advance PIP/No-fault Repeals
Thursday, 13 April 2017

Tallahassee – Legislators in two key committees voted this morning to advance separate proposals, each aimed at replacing Florida’s decades-old No-Fault/Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance coverage requirement. Both bills are strongly supported by the Florida Justice Association and are among their top priorities this legislative session. The FCA was among those groups - and the only chiropractic and provider group - testifying against both proposals in both committees.
