TALLAHASSEE — Under Governor Ron DeSantis, Florida is the least affordable state in the nation when it comes to housing. The people of our state are taking notice, as recent polling commissioned by Progress Florida and Florida Watch found 74% of Floridians support “declaring a state of emergency for housing affordability to cap rent hikes at 10 percent per year.”

TALLAHASSEE — Under Governor Ron DeSantis, Florida’s property insurance market is a disaster. Right now, Floridians are paying triple the national average in costs for property insurance and premiums have increased 112.8% since DeSantis took office in 2019. When confronted with the reality of this crisis, Governor DeSantis called for a special session which resulted in a $2 billion bailout of the insurance industry, with no relief for homeowners.
