Leader not a laggard

Florida Justice Reform Institute President William Large praised DeSantis and the Florida Legislature for passing SB 2A.

“SB 2A includes substantial reforms that remove the incentive to file lawsuits over questionable claims,” Large said in a prepared release.

Established in 2005 and backed by the Florida Chamber, Large’s group lobbies the Legislature on all tort related issues, from workers compensation to medical malpractice to property insurance. Large said the bill provides “common sense solutions” that will hold all parties accountable.

“With his signature on Senate Bill 2A, Gov. DeSantis will have another opportunity to cement Florida’s reputation as a litigation reform leader and not a laggard.”

DeSantis signed the bill on Friday.

Meanwhile, the like-minded group Floridians for Lawsuit Reform also issued a prepared release on the property insurance reform package. The headline read: “Florida Lawmakers Deliver an Early Holiday Gift to Floridans and No Grinch in Sight.”
