Sink says she hears PIP is a No-Go



CFO Alex Sink told the Buzz on Wednesday that she has heard, at least unofficially, that there is no chance that the Legislature will take up auto insurance during the special session in September.

Her office is working towards coming up with a way of telling motorists what they can expect October 1.

When asked if she thinks motorists will go without coverage, she said her office is advising everyone to buy some type of insurance coverage. But she acknowledged that some agencies are saying they plan to interpret the sunset to mean that nobody will be mandated to buy property damage coverage. Her office is still looking into the issue.
