As a long-time Florida resident, I understand the pressures Floridians face when paying their homeowner's insurance bill. In Congress, I have been an advocate for lower insurance rates.
* I co-sponsored the Homeowner's Insurance Protection Act to provide reinsurance for state insurance programs to better protect their citizens in the event of a natural disaster.
* I co-sponsored the Catastrophe Savings Account Act to create tax-exempt Catastrophe Savings Accounts to allow homeowners to recover from a natural disaster.
* I voted for the Flood Insurance Reform and Modernization Act which would expand the accessibility and coverage of flood insurance policies.
* I voted for the Homeowner's Defense Act, establishing a National Catastrophe Fund. This act would help alleviate the insurance market after a natural disaster.
