A special meeting is scheduled for 3 p.m. on April 20 at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Hotel during The EXPERIENCE on the topic of Florida House Bill 909 and how it can impact your restoration company.

All Florida restoration companies are welcome to attend free of charge to review the proposed bill and determine a way to mobilize against it.

Here’s some information about the proposed bill:

  • It would prohibit assignments of payments under homeowner’s policies. This would be a major blow to the industry and completely give all of the power back to the insurance companies.
  • Any homeowner’s insurance policy may prohibit the assignment of rights or benefits under the policy, and a third-party beneficiary may not accept an assignment or recover against any policy that prohibits assignment. Any Assignment of rights or benefits under a homeowner’s insurance policy that prohibits assignment renders the coverage void. 

The meeting is intended to mobilize political support against this bill immediately. Every restoration company has an interest in seeing that this bill is defeated. Assistance is being provided by attorney Harvey Cohen, Cohen Battista Law Firm and Society of Cleaning and Restoration Technicians (SCRT). SCRT, through ICRA, is working to bring this meeting together for the Florida Restoration Industry.

If you have questions, contact Larry Cooper, Executive Director, ICRA, at or 888-881-1001 x11.
