Overview

With approximately 1200 miles of coastline and 2276 miles of tidal shoreline, Florida is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of severe weather and sea level rise. This webinar will explore existing and proposed coastal legislation and issues as they relate to the National Flood Insurance Program and Florida’s Citizens Property Insurance Corporation. Speakers include National Wildlife Federation National Advocacy Center Legislative Director Josh Saks, Florida Property Insurance Expert and former Florida Legislator Don Brown, Florida Director of R Street Christian R. Cámara, 1000 Friends of Florida President Charles Pattison, FAICP, and Florida Wildlife Federation Community Planner Sarah Owen Gledhill, AICP. Their organizations are members of Stronger Safer Florida, a nonpartisan coalition comprised of business, consumer and environmental groups from throughout Florida. This diverse membership reflects the broad support for changes to the state-run Citizens Property Insurance Corp. and the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund to better protect all Floridians as well as environmentally sensitive areas throughout the state.
