  • Following months of speculation that a proposal would surface to eliminate Florida's Motor Vehicle No-Fault (Personal Injury Protection) statute, State Senator Jeff Brandes filed SB 1112 on December 11, 2015, which would provide for the law's repeal in 2019.

    The bill has not yet been referenced to any committees and a House companion has yet to be filed.

    As analyzed by the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America, SB 1112 provides for the 2019 repeal of the following statutes comprising Florida's Motor Vehicle No-Fault law: ss. 627.730, 627.731, 627.7311, 627.732, 627.733, 627.734, 627.736, 627.737, 627.739, 627.7401, 627.7403, and 627.7405, F.S.

    It also requires the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation to contract for a study and perform a data call relating to Florida's 2012 No-Fault reforms.
