Business Leaders Highlight the Importance of Tort Reform

January 15th, 2020

Florida business leaders gathered at the Capitol on Wednesday to announce the results of a study assessing the economic benefits of tort reform. 

The report, released by the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) and Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA), calculated the costs of Florida's current civil laws, comparing them to benchmarks in other states.

The press conference featured a host of business-friendly leaders from around the state, including NFIB Executive Director Bill Herrle, along with Senator Doug Broxson and Representative Bob Rommel.

Both Republican legislators led the crusade last legislative session against the ongoing lawsuit abuse that had plagued Florida's legal and business climate for years, passing an assignment of benefits (AOB) bill that took seven years to cross the finish line.
