CFO Jimmy Patronis Issues Statement on Senate Passage of My Safe Florida Home Legislation

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released the following statement on the passage of Senate Bill 7028 yesterday. The legislation will improve the functionality of the My Safe Florida Home program, which has proved to be beneficial to homeowners around the state. The bill, among other provisions, revises the improvements that mitigation grants may be used for and specifies eligibility for the program. The bill will also ensure that homeowners that need the program the most are able to utilize its benefits.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “The My Safe Florida Home program has been a big success in our state, allowing Floridians to better protect their homes from hurricanes and help cut insurance costs in the process. Unfortunately, it’s not if, but when a storm will take aim at our state, so it’s vital that we refund this program so more homeowners can benefit from free home inspections and storm mitigation grants. Special thank you to Senator Jim Boyd for his leadership and hard work in ushering this good legislation through the process on behalf of all Florida homeowners.”

Senator Jim Boyd said, “Floridians are looking for ways to protect their homes from storms while saving on their insurance premiums and the My Safe Florida Home program does just that. I’m thankful to sponsor this legislation and work with CFO Patronis so we can fortify Florida homes and give insurance consumers some relief on their property insurance bill.”
