The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation has no plans to draft its own legislative fix for rising workers’ compensation rates, but that doesn’t mean regulators are ignoring the problem, Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier said Wednesday.
“We expect to be actively involved in that conversation,” Altmaier told reporters as his office’s biannual industry conference wound down.
“We are going to have opinions on how potential legislation protects injured workers and how they access the workers’ comp market and things of that nature,” he said. “Just because we don’t have a specific bill that we’ll be running doesn’t mean we won’t necessarily be playing a leading role in that conversation.”
Altmaier’s office is working on specific legislation targeting abuse of assignment of benefits agreements, blamed for driving up property insurance premiums. Read more about that here.
That problem has been percolating for years, Altmaier said. Workers’ compensation emerged suddenly this spring, when the Florida Supreme Court struck down limits on attorney fees in lawsuits against insurance companies and on temporary total disability benefits.
The result in September was approval by Altmaier’s office of a 14.5 percent boost in workers’ compensation insurance premiums, rolling out over 12 months beginning Dec. 1.
The court rulings have ignited a backlash from state leaders and within the business community, with industry groups looking for a way around them.
“We view our role as being a resource to these individuals — reviewing their ideas and being at the table, certainly,” Altmaier said.
As for assignment of benefits — or AOB — abuse, he sees his role as focusing the discussion, which in the past has produced competing legislation but no solution.
“My goal for AOB would be to run a bill that we could build consensus around and perhaps get to the legislative session and offer something people can support.”
Altmaier’s optimistic the office will succeed.
When Florida’s two U.S. Senate candidates talked about their issue policy positions they made Florida voters choices really easy during their final face-to-face debate Wednesday night broadcast statewide on TV.
But rather than run with that, U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy appeared obsessed with trying to tie U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio to Donald Trump, who, in Murphy’s clear view has undeniably has enraged millions of Floridians; and to label Florida’s incumbent Republican senator seeking a second term as someone who failed to show up for his first term.
And Rubio tried to characterize Murphy as someone who’s a “serial embellisher” of his resume and record, when neither of them, in Rubio’s repeated assessment, have anything worthwhile to actually claim.
Over and over and over. Trump, Trump, Trump. Embellish, embellish, embellish. Doesn’t show up, terrible voting record, unreliable. Never accomplished anything. Nothing. Ever.
Murphy was arguably the more obsessed, criticizing Rubio’s endorsement of the Republican presidential nominee so often that Rubio finally squealed, 36-minutes into the 60-minute debate at Broward College in Davie, “The answer to every question tonight by Congressman Murphy is Donald Trump.” Yet Murphy didn’t quit, even after being called out for it.
Too bad. Because Rubio’s call-0ut came because Murphy walked on one of his own best answers of the night.
A left-field question demanded that the candidates each take a position on the concerns about police killing unarmed black men. The tragic phenomenon, played out too often to ignore in the past four years while the Black Lives Matter movement emerged in outrage and the All Lives Matter movement emerged to polarize the issue, actually had Murphy and Rubio largely agreeing. Both expressed strong empathy and concern for communities, particularly minority communities, which have come to distrust police. Both also expressed strong support and admiration for “the vast majority” of police, but both
Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Patrick Murphy tried to to focus largely on policy during a televised debate Wednesday, but neither man could escape from attacks that have dogged them for months.
Rubio was blasted for his attendance record, one of the worst in the Senate, while Murphy was criticized his limited record congressional accomplishments. And while neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump were anywhere near the Broward College stage, both presidential hopefuls loomed large over the debate.
The debate — hosted by Leadership Florida and the Florida Press Association — was the second, and likely final, time the two men shared a stage this election cycle. And it comes as Rubio continues to lead in the polls.
RealClearPolitics, a polling aggregation website, has Rubio ahead by an average of 3.6 percentage points, while Bloomberg Politics poll released earlier Wednesday showed the Miami Republican leading by 10 points.
“Here’s the choice in this election, because elections are at their best when they’re about clear choices, and this election is a clear choice,” said Rubio. “I have real, concrete achievements I can point to, things I’ve been able to do for the state of Florida. He’s been there for four years, and no one’s even noticed. This is a clear … difference.”
More than 2 million ballots have already been cast ahead of the Nov. 8 general election, and millions more people are expected to vote during the early voting period.
“Florida deserves a senator that’s going to show up to work, somebody who is going to roll up their sleeves and get things done for Florida,” said Murphy. “There’s way too much at stake to have a missing senator. We have to do more.”
Both men tried to use the debate to draw clear differences from their opponent on a variety of issues, including Cuba and the Supreme
