House Advances PIP/No-fault Repeal
Friday, 12 January 2018
Friday, January 12, 2018, Tallahassee – Late yesterday the full Florida House advanced their version of a bill proposing to repeal Florida’s decades-old no-fault auto insurance system, seeking to replace it with a new at-fault system requiring drivers carry mandatory bodily injury and property damage coverage. The proposal, HB 19 by Rep. Erin Grall (R-Vero Beach), cleared a procedural hurdle referred to in legislative parlance as “Second Reading.” Under Florida’s constitution, each legislative bill must be “read” a total of three times, the second of which includes the introduction and consideration of amendments, plus the answering of members’ questions. Following that review, the bill is then “rolled” to third reading, meaning it then becomes available for final passage by a roll call vote when the body next meets – most likely, later today.
