Voters Call Homeowners Insurance Industry a Crisis

February 27th, 2008 by flanews

According to an opinion poll released by Property Casualty Insurers, or PCI, voters believe the condition of the state’s homeowner’s insurance industry is dire. More than 40 percent of the 800 voters polled describe this issue as a crisis. From the poll PCI assert that the voter’s opinions need to be taken into consideration by policy makers and members of the private sector.

“Voters are looking for a long term solution and a long term consistency of rates rather than immediate, necessary immediate rate cuts. So it is a long term solution voters are looking for rather than immediate band-aid approach,” Neil Newhouse with Public Opinion Strategies said.

Among Florida voters this issue ranked second only to property taxes, beating out health, education, drugs, and crime issues.
