Florida Bill Would Make Insurance Commissioner An Elected Position
January 29, 2020 by Staff Reports
A bill introduced by State Sen. Annette Taddeo, D, would make Florida the 12th state to elect its insurance commissioner.
The bill introduced this month would make the commissioner of insurance a member of the governor’s cabinet.
Thirty-nine states have appointed insurance commissioners. In 37 of those states, appointments are made by the governor, and in the remaining two, they are appointed by a commission. Florida is one of those two states.
