Floridians in Action to hold protest rally in Tropical Park on April 2nd


Miami, Florida – March 26, 2011 –

Floridians in Action, a consumer advocacy group, will be holding a protest rally against anti-consumer insurance legislation. The protest will take place:

Location: In front of Tropical Park (Palmetto Expwy and SW 40 Street, Miami, FL)
Date: April 2nd, 2011
Time: from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

The goal of the protest is to raise public awareness of the proposed property insurance rate increases and anti-consumer bills that are making their way through both, the Florida House of Representatives and the Florida Senate. Floridians must know how damaging these proposed bills will be to homeowners of our state.

Bills such as SB178, SB1714, SB 1462, SB1330, SB408 and alike, effectually deregulate insurance markets, allow catastrophic rate increases and reduce coverage and representation for homeowners across the board. These bills will lead to job losses, foreclosures, vacancies in an already devastated real estate market. While the big insurance corporations will be generating exorbitant amounts of revenue - property owners, renters, businesses and our State will bear the brunt of these bills born from backroom deal between big insurance and their lobbyists and politicians in Tallahassee. We Floridians must stand together and speak with one voice and tell these politicians “This Stops Now.”
