Scott Huddles with Citizens Insurance Chief

Gov. Rick Scott is scheduled Tuesday afternoon to meet with Citizens Property Insurance President and CEO Barry Gilway.

Scott’s schedule doesn’t offer details about the subject of the 2:30 p.m. meeting, but Gilway and other Citizens officials are pushing for legislative changes that would affect an insurance practice known as “assignment of benefits.”

Citizens argues that the practice has led to a dramatic increase in expensive water-damage claims, particularly in South Florida.
