A bill introduced by State Sen. Annette Taddeo, D, would make Florida the 12th state to elect its insurance commissioner.
The bill introduced this month would make the commissioner of insurance a member of the governor's cabinet.
Thirty-nine states have appointed insurance commissioners. In 37 of those states, appointments are made by the governor, and in the remaining two, they are appointed by a commission. Florida is one of those two states.
If the bill becomes law, the first elected commissioner of insurance of Florida would be voted on in November 2022 and assume office in January 2023.
