Today's Supreme Court ruling is not just a win for Hobby Lobby, but an affirmation that our nation was founded on the principle of liberty and the exercise of our individual faith. Many provisions within the Affordable Care Act are viewed as a direct assault on individual freedom and the constitutional rights. Today's ruling is a great example of the enduring power of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Atwater's questions lead to overdue rate reductions.

In January that "a half-dozen of the state's 30 major property insurers have a recently approved or pending request for a rate cut between 2.4 percent and 9.2 percent," Jeff Harrington of the Tampa Bay Times noted in an article published Wednesday in the Herald-Tribune.

"Based on rate filing requests and approvals through mid-March," Harrington reported, "all of the filings are still in that range with one exception. American Bankers Insurance Co. was approved for a 15.4 percent rate cut."

When it comes to Florida's property-insurance rates, what a difference a little pressure from the state's chief financial officer can make.

With the close of candidate qualifying behind us I am proud to announce our campaign is officially underway for Chief Financial Officer.

I congratulate those who have offered themselves to the voters of Florida in pursuit of public service and look forward to the weeks ahead on the campaign trail with you.

I am honored to serve you and proud of what we have accomplished together to help improve the financial health of our great state:

Contract reform and increased transparency

Fighting fraud, waste and abuse in both government and the insurance marketplace

Promoting sound fiscal management to protect our state’s AAA bond rating 

Returning millions in unclaimed property to Floridians

I am proud of the team we have in place and the record of success we have achieved on behalf of Florida taxpayers. However there is more we can do to make certain government operates efficiently, transparently and with the greatest respect for the hard work and perseverance of the small businesses, entrepreneurs and citizens it serves.

See you on the campaign trail!

Jeff

A Victory in the Fight Against Insurance Fraud:

PIP Legislation Proving Its Worth

A few years ago Tampa had become the capital of personal injury protection insurance fraud, as con artists staged accidents and clinics bilked the system, running up charges for fake injuries.

Fortunately, the state Legislature responded, and it appears the reforms are working.

The office of insurance regulation reports that personal injury protection coverage is expected to drop an average of 13.2 percent, based on a survey of 20 insurers that cover more than 75 percent of the state market.

PIP provides insurance coverage for injuries, lost income and other benefits for people hurt in motor-vehicle accidents. The limit is $10,000.

The goal of PIP was to ensure medical bills were covered in a timely fashioned without litigation, but swindlers learned how to take advantage of the “no-fault” insurance, making false accident reports and submitting fraudulent medical claims.

The Hillsborough County Commission, led by Commissioner Kevin Beckner, tried to fight the rip-off on a local level with an ordinance that included clinic licensing and other requirements. That effort ran into legal issues.

But, fortunately, Gov. Rick Scott, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and several key lawmakers also made a priority of combating the fraud, which a study conducted for Atwater estimated resulted in an extra $400 a year in automobile insurance premiums for the average Florida family.

ICYMI: Chelsi Henry named RNC Rising Star

I am humbled to be able to honor my mother, having been selected for recognition as one of the newest “Rising Stars” of the Republican Party. The Rising Star initiative is a strong, concerted effort by our party to engage and listen to the next generation of leadership. And it’s clear to me, in this new role, that the Republican National Committee is listening to new voices that often make up the young, silent majority.

Chelsi P. Henry serves as a senior advisor to CFO Jeff Atwater.
