The following statement may be attributed to R Street Florida Director Christian Camara:

The Cabinet had a difficult task in selecting a replacement for Kevin McCarty, Florida’s first appointed insurance commissioner. David Altmeier understands the insurance marketplace in Florida, having served as deputy commissioner of property and casualty insurance and, before that, as the FLOIR’s head of financial oversight for property and casualty companies. We’re pleased the state’s elected representatives were able to get past political differences to select a candidate to work on the pressing issues facing Floridians, including reforms to the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, continuing to shrink Florida Citizens and expanding the glidepath toward free-market rates in the Sunshine State.
