Citizens of FL has now posted (eff 4/22) the new Request for Proposal for not

2009-2011. There is less than one week for adjusting firms wishing consideration
to get their questions in to Citizens per the RFP information.

adjusting firms which may limit those applying to the firms in business for
several years versus new adjusting firms.
