Miami-Dade creates insurance task force

@PatriciaMazzei

Miami-Dade commissioners created a task force Tuesday to recommend to state lawmakers improvements to Citizens Property Insurance.

The 17-member task force will, among other things, examine how Citizens' recent decisions to raise homeowners insurance rates and scale back coverage affect residents in hurricane-prone Miami-Dade County.

"This cannot continue on the way it's going," said Commissioner Jose "Pepe" Diaz, who sponsored the item. "Our citizens can't keep suffering."

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez announced the creation of a similar advisory group at his “state of the county” address in February.
