Gov. DeSantis backs Jeff Brandes’ call for property insurance Special Session

Is it too late for the St. Petersburg Republican to have a redemption arc?

Gov. Ron DeSantis says he wants lawmakers to reach a deal on property insurance, reigniting an issue that the Legislature failed to agree on last month.

The Governor had previously encouraged the Legislature to take up property insurance legislation when they meet next week for a Special Session on redistricting. Brandes, a St. Petersburg Republican who for years has harped on rising insurance rates and the increasing number of insurers going insolvent, called for a Special Session on Wednesday dedicated to shoring up Florida’s tumultuous property insurance market.
