CFO Jimmy Patronis: New Lobbyist Registration Will Benefit Consumers

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis today released a statement on Citizens Property Insurance Corporation’s new policy for requiring lobbyists to register their efforts on behalf of their clients. This new policy comes after CFO Patronis called on Citizens to examine its internal Code of Ethics and consider options to increase transparency when it comes to lobbyist disclosure. The corporation’s President and CEO Barry Gilway presented a policy at the meeting of the Florida Cabinet today. 
“Requiring those who lobby Citizens Property Insurance Corporation to disclose what they are doing just makes good sense. I applaud Barry Gilway, the entire Board and staff for developing a policy that puts transparency at the forefront, said CFO Jimmy Patronis. "Considering Citizens Property Insurance Corporation provides coverage to more than 444,000 policyholders in our state, this new rule was needed and will benefit Florida consumers and businesses alike.”
