Florida Governor Vetoes No-fault Repeal

June 30, 2021

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has vetoed legislation that would have ended Florida’s system of no-fault auto insurance, saying the bill (SB 54) would result in “unintended consequences.” Critics argued the bill would push up rates for many drivers.


“While the PIP system has flaws and Florida law regarding bad faith is deficient … SB 54 does not adequately address the current issues facing Florida drivers and may have unintended consequences that would negatively impact both the market and consumers,” DeSantis wrote in his veto letter.
