TALLAHASSEE (Jan. 5, 2016) – The following is a statement from R Street Institute Florida Director Christian R. Cámara on today’s announcement by Kevin McCarty that he will resign from his post with the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation effective May 2:

Commissioner McCarty has served Florida with distinction. Indeed, while we may have been critical of some of his regulatory decisions over the years, he has effectively overseen the state’s complex and politically charged insurance ‎system with fairness and restraint. Undoubtedly, he deserves credit for restoring sanity and stability to Florida’s shaky insurance marketplace. His service and unparalleled institutional knowledge will be missed.
