Hurricane insurance break expected in 2015

TALLAHASSEE, FL (WFLX) - Floridians can expect a slight break on their insurance bills next year. The state is ending a charge that has been used to pay off claims related to Hurricane Wilma.

Wilma hit South Florida at the end of the 2005 hurricane season. The 1.3 percent emergency assessment will no longer appear on policies starting next January 1.

The charge right now shows up on most insurance bills including homeowners and auto insurance policies.
