Gov. Ron DeSantis says two state investigations have been launched following reports that insurance companies have been slashing Hurricane Ian payouts, leaving homeowners to foot the repair bill.Property
The allegations were first made more than three months ago in Tallahassee, during a Florida House committee meeting.
In December, lawmakers convened a special session on property insurance. They wanted to pass massive reforms requested by insurance companies.
Some said it was a bad idea, including three insurance adjusters, who tried and failed, to stop the law from being passed.
Hurricane Ian crashed into Florida’s west coast in late September last year. The Category 4 hurricane packed 150 mile per hour winds, heavy rains and storm surge.
More than two months after the hurricane, storm clouds gathered over lawmakers sitting on the House Commerce Committee.
