Florida Legislators Tackle Windstorm Damage

Florida legislators voted Tuesday to reduce homeowner insurance rates and give relief to taxpayers who have been faced with rising insurance rates in the wake of two consecutive years of significant hurricane activity. Though the state didn't get hit with any major storms in 2006, the previous two seasons brought the likes of hurricanes Ivan, Frances, Charlie, Jean and Wilma, to name a few. The outcome of the legislative meetings earlier this week were big news both in the state and elsewhere.
