Florida Governor Vetoes Auto Insurance Reform Bill

July 12, 2021

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has vetoed auto insurance legislation that would repeal Florida’s well-known no-fault law.

The bill passed the legislature in April with votes of 100-16 in the House and 37-3 in the Senate. The legislature could override the Governor’s veto with a 2/3 vote of each chamber.

The bill would have repealed the requirement that insureds purchase $10,000 in personal injury protection coverage. Instead, the bill would require the purchase of up to $25,000 for death or bodily injury liability coverage.

At one time during the legislative session, the language of an auto glass Assignment of Benefits bill was inserted into the auto insurance reform legislation, but it was amended out of the larger reform bill. Assignment of Benefits legislation did not move forward during the Florida legislative session.
