Florida Legislators Tackle Windstorm Damage
Florida legislators voted yesterday to reduce homeowner insurance
rates and give relief to taxpayers who have been faced with rising
insurance rates in the wake of two consecutive years of significant
hurricane activity. Though the state didn't get hit with any major

Ivan, Frances, Charlie, Jean and Wilma, to name a few. The outcome
of the yesterday's legislative meetings were big news both in the
state and elsewhere.
