Where was Jim, Part II



RPOF is paying careful attention to Jim Davis' actions. From a news release today:


"Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on H.R.5637, the 'Non-Admitted and Reinsurance Reform Act of 2006,' a bill sponsored by Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-Brooksville) and co-sponsored by Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Pembroke Pines), that aims to improve the regulation of the surplus lines and reinsurance market. Jim Davis missed the vote to attend fundraisers in Florida." RPOF spokesman Jeff Sadosky adds: "This was one of Jim Davis’ first opportunities to help Florida’s small businesses gain an advantage in the insurance crisis, but he put campaign fundraising ahead of voting on his constituents’ behalf."
