VETO POWER: Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday vetoed an attempt to make Citizens Property Insurance more consumer-friendly as it pushes homeowners to private companies. The proposal (HB 1087) would have required Citizens to send homeowners several offers for private insurance, rather than one at a time, so they could make comparisons between rates. And it would have limited Citizens to contacting a policyholder only twice per year.
