Florida's Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher announced the creation of a mediation program to give storm victims, free of charge, a way to quickly and fairly resolve claim disputes with their insurance companies. The state is currently recovering from a record-setting four hurricanes this year. As Florida's CFO, Gallagher oversees the Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS). The mediation program, created by emergency rule, establishes a dispute resolution process for citizens who need help with resolving hurricane claims, prior to pursuing other options such as going to court.
