Senate tries to revive auto-fee rollback
Fla. Senate tries to revive auto-fee rollback as part of insurance bill
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida senator has tried to revive a proposal to roll back automobile fees in Florida by tacking it onto an omnibus insurance bill.
Sen. Anitere Flores on Wednesday offered an amendment to the bill (HB 635).
The Miami Republican's amendment rolls back the fees all at once. It pays for them by killing a decades-old tax break to insurance companies — all of which was the Senate's idea.
A House panel had voted to phase in the reductions and preserve the tax break.
Sen. Audrey Gibson objected by saying the amendment didn't relate directly to the bill being discussed. The bill was then temporarily postponed.
The legislative session ends Friday.
