HB 217 was a major sinkhole insurance proposal winning final approval from the Legislature during the 2006 regular session. It was vetoed by then-Governor Bush because it duplicated provisions in the big property insurance package of that year, SB 1906.

This bill analysis from House committees, including the House Insurance Committee, contains excellent background on sinkholes in Florida and sinkhole insurance issues.
