Business Lobbyists Back Crist

Associated Industries, which represents some of the largest corporations in the state, called a news conference in Tallahassee Wednesday to attack the property insurance reform plan from Democratic candidate Jim Davis.

The Associated Industries President says Davis is wrong to promise a savings of 40 percent on your insurance bill.

"We own an insurance company," said Barney Bishop. "We know how rates are made. We understand how insurance companies operate and to promise a 40 percent is not fair to the people of Florida because he can’t produce."

A spokesman for the Davis campaign says Wednesday’s press conference is one more example of how special interests in Tallahassee are trying to protect their influence.
