Florida House Passes Bill to Fix Zota Problem

On a vote of 116-0 the Florida House of Representatives passed HB 853 this morning. The bill would clarify the surplus lines regulatory status in Florida put into question following the Florida Supreme Court's 2008 decision in Essex v. Zota.

A similar Senate bill (SB 1894) may be reviewed today by the Florida Senate.
