Gelber presses Rubio on PIP, again



House Democratic Leader Dan Gelber is busy writing letters these days. Today, he sends one to House Speaker Marco Rubio urging action on PIP.

"Although I am delighted to read that progress is being made to avoid the impending sunset of No-Fault Auto Insurance, I am concerned that all discussions seem to be taking place out of the public eye. There is no prior notice of meetings, no hearings for the public to attend, no media reporting what issues are being discussed. That is why I am renewing my suggestion that it would be best for the legislature to extend PIP for one year to give us the opportunity to properly do what we failed to do last session: complete a full and open, public examination and make a well informed determination of how to fix the deficiencies in the current PIP system."
