The article discusses the introduction of House Bill 661 which aims to protect insurance policyholders from public adjusters. The bill was introduced by Florida State Representative Julio Robaina after Florida suffered several storms in 2004 and 2005. Under the legislation, public adjusters are prohibited from giving incentives to their prospective clients. Moreover, the bill also establishes the cancellation process and provides leeway to the insured.
