Public Records Relating to CFO Jimmy Patronis

Press Releases

Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released the following statement applauding 2020 legislative efforts by Speaker-designate Chris Sprowls and Senator Kelli Stargel to prohibit life insurance companies from using DNA or genetic testing to determine the type and cost of coverage available to consumers. Senate Bill 1564 and House Bill 1189, which passed the House Health and Human Services Committee today, would prohibit life insurers and long-term care insurers from canceling, limiting, denying coverage, or establishing differentials in premium rates based on an individual’s genetic information.
With recent reports of a Cape Coral resident falling victim to a $16,000 Apple Support tech scam, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis urges Floridians to stay on guard for fraud and know how to spot a tech support scam. Tech support scammers can trick you into believing you have a serious problem with your computer and that you need to pay for tech support services you don’t need by wiring money, putting money on a gift card, or using a money transfer app like Venmo or PayPal because they know those types of payments can be hard to reverse.
With Senate Bill 476 passing its first committee yesterday afternoon, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released the following statement in support of this important legislation. This bill forbids condominium and homeowners associations from prohibiting law enforcement officers from parking an assigned law enforcement vehicle in certain areas, including driveways.
