(1) When the Governor declares a state of emergency pursuant to s. 252.36, the commissioner may issue one or more general orders applicable to all insurance companies, entities, and persons, as defined in s. 624.04, that are subject to the Florida Insurance Code and that serve any portion of the area of the state under the state of emergency.

By concurrent resolution, the Legislature may terminate any order issued under this section.
(3) The commissioner shall publish in the next available publication of the Florida Administrative Register a copy of the text of any order issued under this section, together with a statement describing the modification or suspension and explaining how the modification or suspension will facilitate recovery from the emergency.
