    The Committee also unanimously agreed to present for Board consideration, without recommendation, an additional reinsurance option for a per-person coverage excess of $10,000,000, possibly recognizing a co-participation in the $4,000,000 xs $1,000,000 layer.

    Additionally, the Committee agreed to authorize FWCJUA Staff to pursue a commutation with Excalibur Re.

    Ms. Torrence noted that Excalibur Re continues to lag in overdue payments, with an approximate $15,000 now added to the already overdue $42,000.  Excalibur Re would like to consider a commutation before the end of the year, she added.  The FWCJUA Staff will begin the process immediately.

    With no further business before the Committee, the meeting was adjourned.
