VOTE FOR YOUR CONSTITUENTS!
VOTE YEA ON H 1267 -- PROPERTY INSURANCE
the HOUSE will vote today on H 1267, sponsored by Representative Julio Robaina and co-sponsored by many other of your colleagues from both parties. The bill with two amendments (see below) has the full backing of our Governor Charlie Crist, who we voted into office to help us with our serious property insurance problems!
Florida's consumers are running out of time to mince words! We need relief from high property insurance premiums. The insurance industry has proven that they only want our money, not our risk! Don't fall for any more of their empty promises and that of the legislators they have bought and paid for! This is where it counts! You can be very sure we are watching for the vote of each of you!
You have only two options: To vote for Florida's consumers -- your constituents -- or to vote for the Insurance Industry! It is our life and the welfare of our families you will be voting upon. Believe me, our memory will last until November 2008!
This is the bill supported by the FLORIDA CONSUMER INSURANCE COALITION .
We consumer need the bill to pass with the two amendments -- nothing else! Please see below!
If you support this version you vote for your constituents. If you vote against it or for a watered down version you vote for the insurance industry! TAKE YOUR PICK!
