Wednesday, 3News Anchor Joe Gazin spoke to Republican Greg Abbott about his opinions on the proposed windstorm insurance charges. 

In the case of a catastrophic loss caused by a hurricane in the Gulf Coast, policy holders who live in counties along the coast will be hit with an unspecified charge through their insurance policies; including automotive, motorcycle, boat, homeowners, renters and commercial building policies.
