Your editorial was a wake up call

Your viewpoint of March 6, 2013, should be a wake up call to insurance policy holders who have not recognized the deceptive way their homeowner’s insurance policies providing sinkhole coverage to comply with Florida law requirements. The policy renewal notices were more than misleading to most insured that would not expect that a Florida law would reduce or eliminate the sinkhole coverage they had on their expiring policy.

Floridians were shamelessly deceived by the change in Florida Statute 627 which established a differentiation between “catastrophic’ damage and the damage that may occur from smaller sinkholes.

This is the time for the legislature to correct their error and voters should contact their elected officials to demand action.
