Gov. Rick Scott got the legislation he wanted to reform Florida’s mandatory motor vehicle no-fault law and crack down on the abuses in personal injury protection cases that have led to skyrocketing increases for coverage. Whether the new measure will be effective remains to be seen. The measure (HB 119) passed on a 22-17 vote in the Senate after some heavy duty lobbying by Scott and others on Friday before lawmakers adjourned at the stroke of midnight.
