Alabama Governor to Name Coastal Insurance Commission

April 8, 2011

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley is creating a commission to address the rising cost of insurance for the state’s coastal homeowners.

Bentley said the commission will be asked to make recommendations on how to make affordable coverage more available to coastal property owners. He then plans on calling a special session of the Legislature to deal with the issue — something he promised during his campaign that he would do.

“The lack of affordable homeowners insurance for people who live on Alabama’s coast impacts the entire state far beyond the coastal communities in which their homes are located.” Bentley said. “We must stop the rising cost of coastal insurance for the benefit of all Alabamians.”

The Governor’s Coastal Insurance Commission will consist of seven members appointed by Bentley.
