Gov. Rick Scott vetoed bills Tuesday that were intended to increase convenience-store security and to give policyholders more options as the state seeks to move them out of Citizens Property Insurance Corp.
Scott said one measure (HB 755) would force convenience stores to add "potentially costly security." The second bill (HB 1087), he said, "undermines progress" in shifting policies into the private insurance market from the state-backed Citizens.
Lawmakers approved both bills without opposition during this spring's regular legislative session.
