FSLA has a Political Action Committee fund called SURPAC used to support political committees and candidates for the Florida Senate and House of Representatives that support our industry. While we encourage our members to participate in our PAC fund, it is voluntary.
Political action committees promote the welfare of the Florida Surplus Lines agent by helping elect those candidates who support the wholesale system and related issues. As a contributing member, you help achieve that goal. Any individual or company may contribute any amount.
Over the past 50 years, the FSLA has maintained concern for the regulatory and legislative changes affecting the surplus lines insurance industry and communicated those changes and all related issues to member firms. When the Florida Department of Financial Services or the Legislature has proposed a bill or legislation that would adversely affect our business, we have been 98% effective in defeating or changing the proposed changes to surplus lines.
