TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Former Gov. Charlie Crist says he will seek to repeal a bill signed by Gov. Rick Scott that Crist says is providing less property insurance coverage at a higher price.
Crist said Tuesday that insurance rates that dropped when he was governor have been rising under Scott.
If he's elected, Crist said he'll seek to repeal a bill that Scott signed his first year in office that benefited insurance companies. Crist vetoed a similar bill the year before.
It's a familiar theme for Crist, who campaigned in 2006 on the promise to lower property insurance rates that were skyrocketing after eight hurricanes hit Florida in two years.
Crist called a special legislative session soon after taking office in 2007 to address rising insurance costs.
