Floridians Get Break On Insurance Bill

Floridians are going to get a slight break on their insurance bills next year.

The state is ending a charge on insurance bills that has been used to pay off claims related to Hurricane Wilma.

Wilma struck South Florida at the end of the 2005 hurricane season. Gov. Rick Scott and Cabinet members who oversee the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund voted yesterday to end the 1 percent emergency assessment.

The charge shows up on most insurance bills including homeowners and auto insurance policies.
