Commissioner Altmaier said:
“Chair Broxson has remained committed to bringing relief to Floridians who continue suffering from AOB abuse and the exploitation of Florida’s unique attorney fee structure. Today marks the beginning of National Consumer Protection Week, and the advancement of SB 122 is a win for consumers across our state.
