Ros-Lehtinen Applauds Review By Citizens Property Insurance That Calls FOR A DECREASE In Property Insurance Rates For Monroe County
Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is pleased that Citizens Property Insurance conducted an analysis of its rate filings and found that Monroe County should get their rates decreased by up to 44 %.
Ros-Lehtinen has been tirelessly working with the grass roots organization Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe (FIRM) and the Florida Insurance Commissioner to reach a consensus on this most vexing issue.
Ros-Lehtinen has also been very involved in trying to get State or Federal action on this issue. She has also contacted several State and Federal officials over this issue and will continue fighting if a fair resolution to this problem is not found.
Said Ros-Lehtinen, "The overwhelming evidence presented at Tuesday's hearing reveals that the recent rate filing issued by Citizens Property Insurance is not based upon sound actuarial evidence and therefore, should be rejected. Monroe County is a leader in the state for its hurricane mitigation efforts and strict building codes and these proactive measures must be taken into account when determining insurance rates."
