Florida Politics reports:
Gov. Ron DeSantis claimed Monday that he wanted to do more to reform Florida’s troubled property insurance market than the Legislature sought to do. But on Tuesday in Tallahassee, DeSantis deferred explaining what exactly the House and Senate wouldn’t do that he desired.
“We can talk about the policy stuff,” DeSantis said. “I think, right now, we’re focusing on the response, protecting people and then getting what we need to go there.”
“This is about execution right now, we obviously can have different policy debates when the time is appropriate,” DeSantis added. “But this is what we have to do to be able to save lives, be able to respond, to be able to get people back on their feet.”
