    Does anyone have information about the new florida laws with regard to temporary lisencees? 

    These laws do not effect me, as my TX license reciprocates, but I received an email from a firm stating that background checks and drug screenings were mandatory this year for anyone working claims in Florida, was just wondering if anyone else had received this same info.

    Is this becoming the standard?

    Sher- the firms may be referring to the background checks and drug screenings that Citizens of FL requires. I had posted the Citizens 2007 requirements and manual link on CADO previously and they are going to require that the adjusting firms have done the checks and drug screening on adjusters. Possbily the firm you got the letter from is one of the 45 announced adjusting firms doing the Citizens claims. I'm not sure that the fact you have a TX license would exclude you from those tests as the instructions in the manual to adjusting firms applies to ALL adjusters they assign to the Citizens claims.

    Yes I have never worked for Citizens and that maybe what they were referring to.  I have just recently had 3 drug screenings and background checks for vendors to have on file for companies that require this such as State Farm, USAA and others that I have worked for in the past.  Most vendors will pay for both, but they are the property of the respective vendors, which requires independents to repeat checks and testing.   Deborah, what is the link for the Citizens 2007  info again?
