Governor DeSantis repealed a widely supported Bill that would require Florida driver's to carry a minimum of $25,000.00 in auto insurance liability coverage in the event that a driver injures another person. On the streets of Florida thousands of drivers opt to not carry any liability insurance or the very minimum of $10,000.00. This has caused thousands of auto accident victims to suffer without recourse for the injuries caused by another driver's negligence. The basis for the veto was mainly due to the possibility that there may be an increase in insurance premiums. The American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA), who describe themselves as "the primary national trade association for home, auto, and business insurers", applauded the veto.
