Senator Fasano Calls For a Citizens Hearing
Posted By Givens Givens Sparks || Sep 4, 2012
According to a Tampa Bay Times article, Senator Mike Fasano sent a letter to Governor Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, asking for a hearing to be held regarding the lavish spending of Citizens executives. This lavish spending flies in the face of most of what the "official word" is from Citizens regarding their finances. Governor Scott, along with members of the Citizens board have repeatedly cried poor, stating that sinkhole claims have put the company in a perilous financial position. They have used the fear tactic that if a major storm hit Florida, that all homeowners would have to pay assessments to help fund the payouts. Which is it, Citizens?
